No problem, at all. There’s a little story behind this whole Tiger thing, so please allow me.

So like four years ago, I purchased this magnificent looking subadult pair of Kingsville Red Bulls. The previous owner had obtained them two years earlier at Snakeday (Houten, The Netherlands) as (just) Kingsville Red Bulls, without mention of any additives to this (basic) formula. And this was about all the guy knew, as he seemed to be completely unaware of anything being particularly special or interesting about this awesome pair of Bulls. Actually, so was I, as I had no knowledge of (the existence of) Tiger Bulls whatsoever, at the time.

However, I still remember the first thought which came to mind when I first saw them: “Tiger”. Just take a look at these pictures (taken by the previous owner), and you’ll understand why.

Anyway, I didn’t even give it that much thought at first, until I stumbled upon this “Tiger” morph as produced by KJUN. The KJUN site only linked to this one picture, displaying a pair of juveniles. There were some obvious differences (the much higher blotch count being one of them), but other than that these little Bulls seemed quite similar to my mine.

So I began to wonder if, - maybe, just maybe -, my pair of Kingsvilles could actually be “Tiger” morphs too. As it turned out, I was both right and wrong about that. I will elaborate on this later.
