Another such video which has caught the attention of users is a clip of a duck and a tiger. Shared on Twitter by the handle @buitengebieden, the 46-second video shows a duck swimming inside a watershed, with a tiger lurking close by.

In the clip, one can see the tiger waiting to pounce on the bird and catch it. However, the duck tries to fool the mighty carnivore by playing  hide and seek. The bird disappears underwater whenever the wild cat approaches. To confuse the tiger, the duck does not appear from the same spot, but swims beneath and reappears in another area in the watershed.

As the bird continues its disappearing act, the tiger is left puzzled at the situation. Another tiger can also be seen approaching the water shed while the duck continues to hide from the wild cat.

Since it was shared on 26 December, the video has gained more than 9,700 likes, along with 930 retweets. Some users have found the clip to be hilarious while others have praised the duck for its intelligence and fighting spirit.
