Golden Tabby Tigers

So you thought tigers just came in orange & black, or white & black?  There are actually rare tiger colors that are not as well-known.

The golden tabby, above, has dark orange stripes instead of black.

The black tiger has wider stripes and more black on its head and back.

And the blue tiger? A blue tiger cub was born at a zoo in Oklahoma, but died while young. There have been reports and descriptions of blue (Maltese) tigers in the wild, but not one has been captured!

What do you think?  Pretty amazing colorations!

The tiger is beautiful, but certain types are very rare and will soon be gone from the earth.

Tigers, regardless of coloration, are the most gorgeous of all mammals IMO. Horses are second.IMO.
