This Cool Bengal Tiger will Grace any Wine Bottle
Tigers are the heaviest cats found in the wild. The most common of the nine subspecies, (three of which are now extinct, and the rest are protected) of tigers is the Bengal. The average life span of the Tiger is 10 to 15 years but they live well into their twenties in captivity. The typical tiger has a rust red coat with white fringes that surround the face and the black stripes for which the tiger is best known. Most adult tigers have over 100 stripes and just like the human fingerprint are unique to that animal alone. Their stripe pattern is how researchers or zoo workers can identify each individual. Tigers can vary in color from the dark rust most people are familiar with, to what is called a Golden Tabby or Strawberry Tiger, which has a thicker fur, with more white, lighter color rust and BROWN stripes not black. There have been reports, without photographs of a blue and a black tiger as well.
Then of course there is the White Tiger.
