Sleepy Tigers
Signed Limited Edition of 850
Published 1986
Image Size 16" x 28"

The Indo-Chinese, and Sumatran tigers are bright reddish tan, beautifully marked with dark, almost black, vertical stripes.
The underparts, the inner sides of the limbs, the cheeks, and a large spot over each eye are whitish.
The rare Siberian tiger has longer, softer, and paler fur. White tigers, not all of them true albinos, have occurred from time to time, almost all of them in India (see also albinism).
Black tigers have been reported less frequently from the dense forests of Myanmar (Burma), Bangladesh, and eastern India.
The tiger has no mane, but in old males the hair on the cheeks is rather long and spreading.
Although most classifications separate the species into six subspecies, some merge subspecies or suggest that two tiger species exist, P. tigris on the mainland of Asia and P. sondaica of Java, Bali, and Sumatra.
