Update 22 July 2020: as we were only licensed to show this video during the school term, it has now been removed. We hope you can stil enjoy the tiger skull below.
The Booth Museum of Natural History may be shut, but we can still read some stories to you at home.
Michael Olden from the Booth Museum reads the classic Judith Kerr story The Tiger Who Came To Tea, while enjoying his own cuppa at home.
This reading has been produced with permission of HarperCollins Children’s Books and will be removed on 22 July 2020.
What about real tigers?
Tigers don’t tend to pop round for tea in real life, and they certainly won’t drink all the water from the taps.
Below you can see the skull of a real Bengal tiger from the Natural Science collections at the Booth Museum.
Michael does a lot of work with tigers. This episode from our podcast records him visiting a school in Moulsecoomb with a Siberian tiger skin named Boris.
