Phil Moore And His Orchestra – Return To Paradise (1959)

Phil Moore imagines a Polynesian paradise replete with howler monkeys screaming in the deep green shadows and naked curvaceous women on the beach at sunset.

Facts about tiger stripe colours

A tiger is born with all of the stripes he will ever have.

The stripes move further apart as the tiger grows into adulthood and they beef up.

The colour of stripes is dictated by a tiger’s parents and lineage in much the same way as hair colour is dictated by ancestry in humans.

Just as with humans, recessive genes cause hair colour differences between parents and cubs in tigers.

Tigers have three common colours with variations between these:

  1. Standard orange hair with black stripes
  2. White hair with black or dark stripes
  3. Golden hair with cinnamon stripes

Look how they push their heads up with such pride and regal majesty! Via Reddit
