This is the "Golden" Tiger, displaying a color mutation which has "bleached" its stripes. It is NOT a distinct species of tiger, but rather an accident of captive cross- breeding. Beautiful though they are, these cats, like the popular white tigers, would not do well in the wild because of their bright colouration.
For some reason, Tigers truly amaze me. If you really think about it, House-cats are like mini-tigers. We always want miniature pigs and miniature horses... we have miniature tigers living in our houses, and we don't even think about that! Tigers are just like our house-cats, but they're instincts are just on a much larger scale. I just think it's kind of cool.
