"The LABYRINTH OF TIGERS is open under the patronage of the LONDON ZOOLOGICAL SOCIETY to CAUTIOUS VISITORS for EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES. Here you may see the DEVIL-APES of FAR MANDELAY. The THING IN THE MIRROR. The CANTIGASTER'S CHILDREN. The gargantuan CAVE-SNAKE. The INHABITER OF WOLVES. The HYBRID FIEND. N.B. The MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDS that you arrange your exit WELL BEFORE CLOSING TIME."The Labyrinth of Tigers is a convoluted hybrid of the London Zoo and Bedlam, where the tigers and only the tigers walk free.
The Coils of the LabyrinthEdit
The Masters run shops at the entrance to the Labyrinth.
|The First Coil...|
|...is home to a few surface-appeal exhibits, such as Walter the rhinoceros, Mary the octopus, Jane the giant lizard, and a pack of hyenas.|
|The Second Coil...|
|...is home to some more Neathily weird creatures: immortal beetles, man-eating crocodiles, lemurs who dethrone their leaders monthly, Thomas the giant crab, Abraham (another giant lizard), George the cave-snake, Robert and Elizabeth the penguins, Percy the leopard, the Bifurcated Owl, the Inhabiter of Wolves, and the Thing in the Mirror.|
|The Third Coil...|
|...houses many of the Labyrinth's human exhibits - mostly madmen and -women, though a few are criminals. Oddly, no mirrors are allowed in this coil... maybe because there are people housed here?|
|The Fourth Coil...|
|...is where the most mysterious creatures of the Labyrinth might reside: the Somnolent Hyena, the Tomb-Lion, the Plated Seal, the Rubbery Hound. Well, they'd be there, but they've all escaped.|
|The Fifth Coil...|
|...contains an emissary of the Court of the Wakeful Eye. It's the Tigers' embassy in London.|
