Some Tiger Facts
Tigers have various color variations such as the golden tabby, or have more black or white colors than the most commonly viewed, Bengal tiger. The most popular color variation is the white Bengal tiger. However, the white tiger is not an albino version of the Bengal tiger. They are not classified as an albino due to their pink pigment around their nose, lips and pink paws, because true albinos have no pigment at all.
No matter the color of the tiger, they are a favorite animal amongst people around the world. In American culture, tigers have been represented in many famous cartoons. Such as the friendly “Tigger” in “Winnie the Pooh” and “Tony the Tiger” being displayed in commercials and cereal boxes for “Frosted Flakes”. The Bengal tiger also represents a strong team mascot for both colleges and high schools across the United States.
