What happens when tigers interbreed?

What happens if you cross let's say an OEBT and a tangerine tiger? Do their offspring just look like regular ol' tigers? Like how neos will revert to the wild look if interbred?

Not looking to create any mutty tigers, just curious

Well tangerine tigers aren't tiger shrimp (despite the name) They are a different species, so they will make a hybrid.

Ahh that would explain why tangerine tigers have spots instead of stripes. Ok let's say you interbreed OEBTs and orange eyed black tigers. What then?

Don't you also get a chance of Royal Blues? Or is that just BTOE x BTOE?
