In this illustration, the tiger has several major changes. First, the number of stripes are increased to help the tiger camouflage since the grass would of died by the torrid weather. Next, the ears produce a cold, waxy substance that acts as a coolant for the tiger’s body. The Future Tiger’s skin and fur is paler than the present tiger, allowing it to camouflage against the dying and grass-less terrain. And lastly, the amount of fur is reduced greatly to help reduce body heat. Compared to the everyday tiger, that has longer and darker fur, darker skin, no coolant, and less stripes, the Future Tiger would have a much greater chance of surviving the harsh and intense heat of climate change, by being preyed upon or heating up too much.
