This is a friend of mine. Every time I go over to visit him he comes over to where I'm standing and chuffs at me. The first time it happened, the keeper was standing there. He said that the chuff is the way tigers greet each other. So him chuffing at me is a kind of a tiger "welcome, I'm happy to see you" expression. Apparently it doesn't mean "I'd be happy to eat you"; that's a different vocalization. For some reason, he seems to like me. Maybe he senses I love cats (normally a good deal smaller than him, of course).
