The Tiger Cub Totem provides recognition during the path to earn the Tiger rank badge. As a Tiger, whenever he completes a Family, Den, or Go See It activity, he earns a bead to place on his totem.
- A white bead for each required 'family activity' part he completes.
- An orange bead for each required 'den activity' part he completes.
- A black bead for each required 'Go See It' part he completes.
- A yellow 'Tiger Track' disk for every 10 Tiger Electives he completes after earning his Tiger rank badge.
This totem is hung from the button of the right pocket with the tiger paw facing out. The beads are presented at den meetings. Once the scout has earned all 15 totem beads, he has earned his Tiger rank badge. The badge is awarded at a pack meeting and sewn onto the blue Cub Scout uniform.

The Cub Scout Immediate Recognition Kit provides recognition during the path to earn the Wolf and Bear rank badges.
As a Wolf or Bear, when he completes his first three achievements, his den leader presents the Progress Toward Ranks totem to him. It's a diamond with a thong attached and a bead slipped on the thong. It is worn on the button of the right shirt pocket as a temporary badge. For every three achievements completed by the scout as a Wolf, he will receive a gold bead. For every 3 achievements earned as a Bear, he will receive a red bead.
These beads should be presented at den meetings. After he gets his fourth bead, he has completed the requirements for his rank badge (either Wolf or Bear) which will be awarded at a pack meeting.
Cub Scouts may continue to wear this emblem after ranks are earned until they become Webelos Scouts.
