This mallard turned out to be one lucky duck after sneaking into a tiger’s den, and leading the jungle cat on a wild goose chase.
Jalur, a 278-pound male Sumatran tiger, doesn’t look pleased by the visitor.
In footage posted to the zoo’s Facebook page, Jalur could be seen swimming and diving after the duck, which splashes along, unfazed. The duck even makes deep dives, and emerges at the other end of the pond when the predator comes too close.
After a valiant battle, the tiger gives up, and shakes himself dry before walking away from the pond. The duck, who was unofficially declared the winner, continues splashing around in the tiger's enclosure.
“This duck would have to be the bravest duck that ever lived,” Symbio Wildlife Park wrote.
