Not to be confused with the Sabertooth.


The Tiger is a nonmember land animal that was first released on July 17, 2010. They are one of the six original animals released at the start of the Beta Testing and are Jamaa's first felines. They are also one of the default animals a New Jammer may choose from.

Default Appearance

Tigers have a gingerish coat with navy-blue stripes, a cream underside, and flat, olive green eyes. They also have dark magenta paw pads and nose. Tigers have a distinctive underbite and reddish-brown layer inside their mouth, as seen in most animals. They have larger front paws and smaller back paws, hunched posture, tiny tail, small lower body, and a flat, wide head.


Acts Description
Sits with one paw forward, its tail sticking out, and its head tilted slightly upwards.
Stands on two legs and dances and does a few cartwheels.
Sleeps with paws tucked under head.
Hops up and down repeatedly. Each time it is at the top of its hop arc, it spreads its forepaws up and apart before returning to the ground.
Jumps around, looking like it's trying to catch something.


  • When a Jammer does not log in to their account for a long time, the figure of a solid gray tiger is shown on their player card. However, even if a player has the solid gray tiger shown on their player card, the player can still log on.
  • Tigers have a pet counterpart.
  • Tigers have three plushie counterparts, the Giant Tiger Plushie, Tiger Plushie, and the Exclusive Tiger Plushie.
  • Tigers were the first to have an animal-exclusive pattern, their stripes. However, the same pattern has appeared on the horse as well.
  • Despite the tiger being the largest big cat on Earth, it is shown as smaller than other big cats like the Lion and the Snow Leopard in the game.
  • There is one Tigers-Only gate/passage in the Meet Cosmo adventure and two more in The Front Lines adventure.
  • Despite being a land animal, if a Tiger goes underwater, their avatar will appear to be swimming. This is unlike other land animals that will only be invisible if they go underwater.
  • In 2012, if a tiger was sleeping while wearing a Fancy Top Hat, the number "2012" would display with fireworks, but this was later removed.
  • There is a glitch where a tiger wears the Jamaaliday Scarf, the bottom half of the item will not appear on their Player Cards or in the Change Your Look menu.
  • There is a glitch where if a tiger plays Sky High, its pattern cannot be seen while moving up. However, it is seen when it falls.
  • The Tiger's default eye color does not show up on the color palette and becomes unobtainable if the eye color is changed.
  • When a Light Up Ring is worn on a tiger it appears inside of the paw.
  • Certain clothing worn on a Tiger, such as the Sheep Cloak, appears much smaller that it actually is when viewed in the Change Your Look menu or on Player Cards.
