Grading and Variations

Super Tigers are not graded, but to distinguish them from their Regular Tiger cousins, Supers have an orange or yellow red and tail, orange-to-red antennas, and dark broad stripes. Super Tigers come in several variations, featuring yellow, orange, or blue tints, as well as silver or gold bands.  These different natural variations suggest that selective breeding to intensify these particular color variations should be possible.
