Many different clades of nearbaseline human are colloquially known as 'tiger splices' but in fact most of these are actually carnivorous rianths, humans with a small amount of tiger genome or with completely artificial neogen genes added to give a tiger-like appearance and other characteristics.

Actual tiger 'splices', that is to say tigers with a small admixture of human or neogen genes that give them some human-like characteristics, are much less common, as are tiger provolves, which are fully sophont tigers which have few human characteristics or none at all.
