Orthodontic tiger nightmare...
I remember seeing Gunther trying to train this behavior with Sigrid. I don't think it ever went into the performance but he did adapt the tigers to holding the flaming bar for the other tigers to jump.Bob
Russian tiger trainer Stepan Denisov would balance on a rope held by two of his tigers in their mouths. I saw him perform this in the early 70's when the Moscow State Circus appeared in New York City.
I remember Gunther's fire bar. I didn't care for that either, just my personal preference. But I want to add I was a big Gunther fan, and that was the only trick he ever did that I didn't like. Everything else from training to showmanship was utterly superb.
