How Tiger got his Stripes

How Tiger got his stripes
Once there was a time in Singapore where tigers had no stripes. Tigers were also slaves to lions because tigers had no stripes and looked like big kitty cats. Tigers could get their stripes by saving another animal though.

One day in Singapore a lion was picking on a squirrel monkey. " You look so weird," said the lion. This hurts squirrel monkey because he was already insecure. Without squirrel monkey realizing what he was doing he slapped lion. The lion tried to eat squirrel monkey.

Then out of no where tiger comes out and grabs squirrel monkey. Tiger tosses squirrel monkey into the nearest tree. Squirrel monkey lands safely hanging by his tail. Tiger then grabs Lion and takes him to the waterfall. Tiger throws Lion to the bottom of the waterfall for Lion to never be seen again.

After that day all tigers were set free from slavery and they all got their stripes. The tiger that threw the lion down the waterfall became the king of the jungle. For all the other tigers they get to roam the world keeping squirrel monkeys safe from lions. That is how tigers got their stripes and no longer looked like big kitty cats they look big wild kitty cats with stripes.
