This was one of the creatures used for rides on the Carousel at the San Francisco Zoo internal link. The carousel was a Dentzel external link design, and one of the last machines constructed by William H. Dentzel. Made in Philadelphia in 1921 it was moved into the San Francisco zoo in 1925.

A tacky tiger stood as a frozen threat to pedestrians on the sidewalk in the Perl Street Mall in Boulder Colorado. It was a metal sculpture for sale just outside an art store.

Nothing so fierce as a painted tiger on the side of a building on Folsom Street in San Francisco. This tiger was painted on the side of a small corner store at the foot of Bernal Heights.

A fake tiger loitered on the grass just outside the San Diego Zoo. From the entrance of the Zoo, a short walk took one to the train ride and carousel. This tiger was seen while along that walk.
