LSU Tigers mascot Mike VI goes for a swim, May 2011. He is frequently visited by Darrell Bezet, known as "the Tiger Whisperer." Bezet is often at the habitat talking and playing with him. Observers say that Mike VI instantly recognizes Bezet's white Lincoln and his distinct walk as soon as he arrives at the habitat. Mike will sprint and launch himsel at Bezet, pawing and jumping at the net that separates them, at which point, Bezet will respond: “That’s my buddy! I love you, too!"
