International Day of the Tiger

Tigers are indeed beautiful animals, so strong and powerful. They are instantly recognisable with their dark vertical stripes and orange/red fur. Find our more about this magnificent creature by clicking on the picture above.

A few facts about tigers you may not know:

  • They rely primarily on sound and sight to hunt, rather than smell.
  • They mostly hunt alone.
  • They can consume more than eighty pounds at one time.
  • They give birth between two and four cubs every couple of years.
  • In the wild they can live up to twenty five years.

I’ve cross stitched two tigers, one instantly recognisable as a Tigger, from a Winnie the Pooh, and the other, stitched almost twenty years ago.
