There are so many amazing things about this photo: the blue ice in the background, blue water, and then the amazing polar bears; one of which is shown diving into the water!
Portrait of the golden tiger by Tambako the Jaguar,: A golden tabby tiger is one with an extremely rare color variation caused by a recessive gene and is currently only found in captive tigers. Like the white tiger, it is a color form and not a separate species. In the case of the golden tiger, this is the wide band gene; while the white tiger is due to the color inhibitor (chinchilla) gene. books.google.com/... #Golden_Tiger
