GUEST POST:
My favorite zoo animal has always been the tiger. For some reason when I was a kid the white Bengal tiger was always my favorite at the Philadelphia Zoo, my school used to take us there on field trips a lot. I just gravitated towards them. To this day, tigers, any color are absolutely beautiful to me. They are a symbol of grace and strength to me. Any kind of domestic and big cat I am always drawn to with the tiger being my favorite and super special to me.
