Tiger is my Chinese Astrological sign so I've decided to start a postcard collection with this theme. I thought the postcard was sent from Romania because of the stamp. But upon closer look, the stamp is actually from Germany.
The tiger is the largest cat species. Its most recognisable feature is a pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside. Tigers lead largely solitary lives. They establish and maintain home ranges.
As a Chinese Astrological Sign, its fixed season is Spring, fixed direction is East, fixed element is wood, and the associated sun sign is Aquarius. Tigers are born leaders, enjoys solitude, and are ambitious.
