Good afternoon from T.I.G.E.R.S. where the 2014 season is under way! Where in Myrtle Beach can you experience a safari? What attraction can you visit and feel the leathery hide of an elephant, the soft touch of a lynx, and hear the heart pounding sound of tigers running at 55 miles per hour?
T.I.G.E.R.S leads the public to thrilling encounters that are both heart pounding and heart warming with the real exotic creatures who rule there.
If you have a fascination for tigers, read on…
The Golden Tabby tiger is one of the world's rarest big cats. This type of tiger became extinct in the wild in 1932 when the last two were shot in Mysore Padesh, India. From work done by us at the Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species and our breeding partner Dr. Jossip Marcan we have brought back from the very edge of extinction the Golden Tabby Tiger. The Golden Tabby tiger is a white tiger with red stripes and a red saddle pattern. It has none of the black coloration of a standard Bengal tiger of a Royal White Bengal tiger. We are very proud to say that since the first birth in 1987 that their are now more than 30 Golden Tabby tigers in existence today.
Tigers are incredible growing machines. They weigh around half a pound at birth and can fit in the palm of your hand. As they begin to grow, they gain a half a pound a day, on average, for the first couple of years of their life. This means that a 1-year-old cub weighs close to 300 pounds. The small birth size of tiger babies is a great benefit for the mother tiger. Tiny babies allow mother tigers to stay in top physical condition so they can track, hunt, and kill prey as large as young elephants, small rhinos, and even buffalo a day or so before giving birth, and just a few days afterwards.
Over the last decade T.I.G.E.R.S. have donated over 200 thousand dollars, as well as time, effort and expertise, to grassroots conservation programs in Asia and Africa. The money from the Wildlife tour goes directly to help save the Endangered Wildlife Species and preserve their natural habitats. For information about T.I.G.E.R.S. visit, www.myrtlebeachsafari.com.
