• "I see what you don’t. Write about things least spoken of. Speak less, listen more. Watch less, observe more. Know more by learning more. Attach less, detach more. Be seen less, remembered more. And believe that less is, in fact, more."
  • "Today, organs can get replaced but no one has found a replacement for lost trust, abandoned hearts, shattered souls and tears that flowed. Imagine that!"
  • "Life is not a straight line. It is a circle. See you a-round!"

Love Tigers Alive

Tigers… Beautiful. Elusive. Charismatic. Solitary. Majestic. Diurnal and close to extinction.

 No two tigers have the same stripes. If you were to shave all the fur off a tiger’s skin, the stripes would still remain.

The roar of a tiger can be heard from over a mile away.

The Siberian tiger is the largest. These beasts can reach an average head and body length of 190-230 centimetres (75-90 in). They can weigh up to 300 kilograms.

A tiger’s canine teeth can grow up to three inches long.
Tigers are diurnal, which means their peak times of activity are dawn and dusk.
A tiger’s saliva is antiseptic, and comes handy when a tiger cleans its wounds.

Love Tigers? Hopefully, like me, you love them alive. They are an endangered species thanks to those who love them dead! Who prefer them in their meals, in their medicines, as a decorative carcass and those who choose to display tiger body parts as expensive & rare artifacts.

The World population of tigers has fallen to less than 8,000!!!
