Which tiger


Which tiger is a more aggressive breeder? Regular tiger, or super tiger?

whichever is closer generation to being wild

Also, you need to stack the odds, if there's 50% male and 50% female, they wont be as aggressive, but if its 99% male and 1% female they will be very aggressive (and kill the female)

Really? I'd like to force a cross breed with male tigers, so what is the best ratio to use?

I use 3 males per female, and be sure they're males with traits you want, because patterning and coloration come from the male. Also the female can take sperm from several partners.

If you want tibees that look more like tigers, use male tigers. If you want them to look more like cbs, use male crystal.
