Here at Kigurumi, it's no surprise that we're obsessed with animals. Mammals, reptiles, amphibians - we love them all.
However, this weekend we're showing love to one of the largest, fiercest mammals out there - the tiger!
If you didn't already know, Saturday July 29th is International Tiger Day. This day was created to embrace these magnificent creatures and bring awareness to their possible extinction. In fact, approximately only 3,000 wild tigers exist in the world today.
Join us in celebrating their existence by checking out some cool tiger facts below, as well as a bunch of our awesome tiger onesies and accessories.
Here are 10 not-so-known Tiger Facts:
