Red face Got the Blues?

Yes, some do. Some are the more typical tan and some have reddish stripes. There are also "super tigers" in the tank. All these colorations are normal wild variant. Some (as you guys probably know) have been line bred to isolate out the recessive color variations.

Nice profile.

For regular tigers I prefer the wild caught variation like yours have over the uniform brown/tan/black stripe type that are typically sold.
