Snowflake the Tiger appears in the Yucatan Casino at 4 AM on the first day, and will be there for about 18 hours. You'll never get a notification about her, so she's easy to miss. Since Snowflake directly ties into at least three other achievements besides "The Skill to Survive" it's important to get this taken care of.

The best time to go over to the Yucatan is right when Case 2-1 becomes active and you have the maintenance room access key, since you'll have a fair amount of time.

Head into the Yucatan with a combo weapon, and after the cutscene you'll be attacked by Ted Smith and Snowflake. Avoid injuring Snowflake (shake her off when she leaps on you) and concentrate on Ted. He's pretty easy to defeat.

To tame Snowflake, you'll need steak. There are three in the tiger habitat. Grab them, and place them on the floor outside the habitat. Stand about 10 - 15 feet away from the steaks, keeping them between you and Snowflake. When she charges at you, she'll stop and eat a steak instead. Then she'll run off and come back two more times, eating steak each time. After the third steak, Snowflake will stop attacking. The achievement will unlock at this time.

A few things:

- Snowflake is considered a survivor once tamed, so bring her back to the safehouse.

- Lenny is in the staff room behind the hotel check-in desk in the Yucatan. Talk to him to get him to join you once Snowflake has been tamed.

- Snowflake is one of the gifts you can give Katey; examine the cat in the security room at the safe house in order to present her to Katey. You'll need to do this if you're trying for the "Father of the Year" achievement.
