2010 Chinese Zodiac for Year of Tiger by Birth Year



"When tigers transform themselves into men, their tails do not change." -- Chinese proverb 

I'm thinking maybe 2009 should have been the Year of the Tiger :-)


 Tiger Tips:

  • Tigers do not purr.
  • A tail gives a tiger extra balance when running and is also used to communicate with other tigers.
  • Adult tigers have thirty teeth.
  • All tigers have a similar marking on their forehead, which resembles the Chinese symbol "Wang",   meaning "King".
  • Tigers can swim and like to cool down by sitting neck deep in water holes.
  • Tiger stripes are individually as unique as a human finger print.
  • Wild tigers do not live in Africa, they are found across Asia and are thought to have originated from Southern China.
  • The heaviest recorded tiger was a Siberian weighing an amazing 1,025 pounds.
  • On average, a tiger can consume up to 60 pounds of meat at a time.
  • Unlike the domestic cat, the pupils of a tiger are round.

    Liz, I think mentioning the golfer was inevitable, besides after the year he's had maybe he'll turn things around for the better.
