    you are adorable, but
    no more like you, k?

    I hope people read up and understand the actual-factuals of white tigers, and that as breathtakingly beautiful as they are, they’re not natural and we ought to stop breeding them
    *steps off soapbox*

    that being said, please enjoy these photos of the tiger rescue’s very own Jellybean – so named because when he was a cub, his paw pads looked just like little pink jellybeans ❤

    they are so beatiful but yet not many know the sad story behind white tigers. The white is forced out by inbreeding. The white is a non dominate gene they all have but is only brought out by serious inbreeding. Some of the cubs can come out white and some will still come out orange. Most white tigers are deformed because of the inbreeding just as humans will be. If you want to learn more visit Still I do think they are pretty but sad what most must go through to get white.

  13. Michele Walck says:

    It really is the perfect face! What????????

  14. mmm, Saff, you’re speakin’ mah language!

  27. So I was listening to Paula Deen when she guested on Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me and she was talking about a hamburger with bacon, eggs and a donut as the bun. So help me, it sounded delicious… 😀

  30. …so that WAS Paula Deen, I get her mixed up with Rachel Ray. The Krispy Kreme burger. Portion size: One per lifetime.

  31. Bloody zoo tourists,
    One look at me and they faint.
    There goes another.

  33. Let’s just put her brain in a jar next to Einstein’s, so we can look through it later–it’s probably all filled with pun precursors, so we couldn’t use it for a brain transplant, ‘cuz only she secretes that special secret enzyme that potentiates pun precursors into de facto puns. Ipso facto, amigos/amigas.

  34. that gives new meaning to the phrase “sucking face”

  35. AWW 😀 What a cutie 😀 I hope tigers will be around for a long time 😀
