Though he was told by numerous friends that it was delicious, Stripes the tiger determined on Wednesday that he most certainly does not like pineapple.
“He’s used to the classic flavors of Indian cuisine, like tamarind and cardamom,” close confidante Padma Shah told The Fluffington Post. “He thought that he might like pineapple mixed with some red curry, but … no, he wasn’t a fan.”
Stripes has been trying to go vegetarian for health reasons, but friends don’t think that’s necessarily wise.
"He reads a lot on the Internet and he gets really into diets, but he’s fickle," said Shah. "Last week it was Paleo, and he couldn’t get enough meat. Now he’s on the Engine 2 diet and it’s all plant-based foods. But I mean, he’s a carnivore, he’s supposed to eat meat. I don’t think this is healthy."
