English term or phrase: fellow
This little fellow was a tiger.
The big fellow said, "What, you living here with these people?"
Me ayudan con esta frase y como traducir big y little fellow?
Tanto little como big fellow se refieren a tigres.
Es un cuento.
Gracias!

Spanish translation:Sugerencia
Explanation:
qué te parece "el tigre pequeñín" y "el tigre grandulón" y te olvidas del fellow.

Quedaría así: El pequeñín era un tigre. El grandulón dijo: ¿Qué, tú aquí viviendo con esta gente?

Espero que te ayude.
