“Tigers are the only cat species that are completely striped even on their skin and no tiger as the same pattern of strips”

The tiger (Panthera tigris) is considered to be the largest species of cats, most recognizable for its pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur. It is also an interesting thing to know that these strips are embedded on their skin. If a tiger’s fur is removed, the strips will remain on its skin. Also, each tiger of any species has a unique pattern of such strips.
