Which Big Cat Would You Be?

I was an ocelot. Including the fastest mammal, the ability to roar, incredible hunting skills and stunning stripy and spotted coats, the big cats are some of the most recognised and admired species on our planet.

"Racing Stripes"  The King Cheetah has a recessive fur pattern mutation. First discovered in Zimbabwe in 1926, this very rare animal has been seen in the wild only 6 times.  About 10K years ago, the population of cheetahs plummeted, perhaps to a single pregnant female worldwide. Modern cheetahs are so genetically similar as to be virtual clones, making this novel coat pattern all the more interesting.

Driving Question - Why do King Cheetahs have different markings, and how? Why is it rare? King Cheetah - The difference between a normal spotted cheetah (left) and a rare king cheetah (right) is a mutation in a single gene.

If I could be any animal in the world i'd be a WHITE TIGER!! I love these beautiful majestic creatures!! #fav

I like white tigers with blue eyes. I would name my white tiger Icicle Blue. Because I name it Icicle Blue is because she has blue eyes.
