a tigress in private

I am a woman who knows how to be a lady in public, and a tigress in private. Life ends when you stop dreaming, Hope ends when you stop believing

I happened to read the text I quoted above in a website. That is a description about a woman herself. What does 'a tigress in private' refers to?

Thank you!

    If you read this on a Web site where people seek romantic partners, such as match.com, I would consider it very suggestive - an indication of what her partner might expect if the relationship reaches a stage where they spend intimate moments together.
