Hey Old School would you be so kind as to get me a BEER PLEASE? After you get me a Beer I will tell you where he is, I promise
When I was just a lad of ten my father said to me
” Hey Old School come here and take a look
 my son at the lovely Tiger’s Tongue”.
Don't put your faith in love, my boy, my father said to me for
The Tiger’s Tongue is Very Pretty  Like a Flower that is Sweet
The Tiger’s Tongue is extensive  & it makes things Fun to Eat
Course & covered with numerous  sharp, rear-facing papillae gives the
Tiger’s Tongue its rough rasping texture to help strip feathers, fur and meat &
makes the Tiger’s Tongue such a Treat!!
Jungala-Bush Gardens Tampa Florida Now open at night for the summer.
The white tiger, technically known as Chinchilla Albinistic, an animal which is rare in the wild, but widely bred in zoos due to its popularity.
No ear can hear nor Tiger’s tongue can tell the tortures of the inward hell of not being able to log on to TravBuddy!
Breeding of white tigers will often lead to inbreeding (as the trait is recessive). Many initiatives have taken place in white and orange tiger mating in an attempt to remedy the issue, often mixing subspecies in the process. Such inbreeding has led to white tigers having a greater likelihood of being born with physical defects, such as cleft palates and scoliosis (curvature of the spine).  Furthermore, white tigers are prone to having crossed eyes (a condition known as strabismus). Even apparently healthy white tigers generally do not live as long as their orange counterparts.  Recordings of white tigers were first made in the early 19th century. They can only occur when both parents carry the rare gene found in white tigers; this gene has been calculated to occur in only one in every 10,000 births.
Let the poor Tiger mind his tongue.
The white tiger is not a separate sub-species, but only a color variation; since the only white tigers that have been observed in the wild have been Bengal tigers (and all white tigers in captivity are at least part Bengal), it is commonly thought that the recessive gene that causes the white coloring is probably carried only by Bengal tigers, although the reasons for this are not known. Nor are they in any way more endangered than tigers are generally, this being a common misconception. Another misconception is that white tigers are albinos, despite the fact that pigment is evident in the white tiger's stripes. They are distinct not only because of their white hue; they also have blue eyes and pink noses.
