I love big cats. Tigers rank as one of my favorite animals too. I love alot of animals.

It will be a tragic world if our only representatives in the world of this majestic animal is only found in zoos, pictures, and video. Heartbreaking.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

Are you trying to be funny? Cause it really isn't.

Tigers seem to have a wide popular aesthetic appeal. That's probably why they will still exist in zoos long after they're extinct in the wild. But there's also the loss of biodiversity aspect. Species are going extinct at a high rate, mostly plants and insects, which don't get the same attention as beautiful tigers do.

I'm not proposing we give up on tigers but I think it helps to get a bigger picture. The IUCN Red List is the authority on endangered and recently extinct species. If you click on the Extinct tab you'll see it goes on for pages and pages. Again, most are lower forms of life, but I just flipped through the first three pages and landed on the Desert Rat Kangaroo which was pronounced extinct in 1996.

I can't describe it, you'll have to look at the picture in the wiki page above. Anyways, it went extinct from over hunting by aboriginals and predation by the red foxes that were introduced to Australia, for fox hunting of course. There are now over 7 million red foxes in Australia.   /sigh

Tigers are fantastic animals and they should be treated well. They're not toys :(

Αν ανάμεσα σ’ όλον τον κόσμο,
νιώθεις πως δεν υπάρχουνε λύσεις,
τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.
