**Hats do not cover eyes. The model head is made smaller than the average human head. This causes the hat to cover the eyes and parts of the face that it will not on a person.**

Here are all the normal color variations for my tiger hat. All of these are based on real naturally occurring Bengal Tiger colors. You have the standard black and orange, the well known white, the rare Golden, and the extremely rare Snow White. The Golden is also know as Strawberry while the Snow White is also known as Ghost.

An important note about these naturally occurring color variations. Currently all the wild Bengal tigers in the world are all standard colored, the only variations are currently found in captivity. Due to the popularity of these variations they are more often than not created through inbreeding. Many of these tigers have sever genetic problems that are caused by them being inbred. I highly recommend reading up on the subject to inform yourself. While these tigers are beautiful, practices like that should not be allowed.

Let me know what you think of the hats!

Thank you! I grew up going to the national zoo to see the white tigers back when they had a pair. It was always my favorite part. Though, I find the breeding practices to make the alternative colored tigers rather despicable.

I know! It devastated me when I found out about it! I was, and am, in such love with them I just couldn't get rid of all my tigers. I compromised though; that's when I started to add the "normal" orange tigers. I hope that people stop that horrible inbreeding but it will be very sad if and/or when the "white" tigers disappear.  Sadly, I've ever got to see a "white" tiger. The one time I got to go to a zoo that had some, it was to hot for them so they were inside their houses. I got to see a "white" lion once though. She was very pretty but very different then I thought.

I see no reason not to still love them the coloration can occur naturally it is just extremely rare. I think the only think we can do is help spread the pictures of the unwanted white tigers that end up with birth defects and hopefully stop the practice. It will only make the naturally occurring ones more amazing. I would love to see a white lion. I did get to see the albino alligator at Golden Gate Park in San Fransisco. Though, white tigers and lions aren't albino it was still really neat. I wonder how different an albino tiger or lion would look from the white versions.

very true! All the big cats are amazing! I also wonder what an albino would look like. hm. I've never seen an albino anything; outside the internet, that I can remember. well I think there may have be an albino alligator in Florida at St. Augustine. Not sure if I saw one or not though; it was years ago that I got to go.

Me too! As much as I love to see them in zoos I would really love to see them in the wild, from a safe distance of course.

Thank you! Who doesn't hate poachers? I think even poachers hate themselves.

I don't know how much poaching had to do with those species. I am pretty sure basic human expansion, habitat destruction, and introduction of other species caused those to go extinct. The Gray Wolf in North America on the other hand was totally caused by humans shooting them, albeit legally but I would love to call them poachers.

absolutely gorgeous! I love the golden coloured one :) will you get pictures of the backs of the ears for the golden and ghost ones?

Thanks! They have white spots on the backs like the others, you can see it a bit on the edges of the ears in the back. I only wanted to use 2 pictures per hat and the ones with spots showing were more full behind shots and not a more 3/4 shot. Did that make sense?

Though looking at those two the setup is almost identical. Maybe I should have gone with a full back shot for at least one of them to more balance out all the angles.
