White Tiger
The white tiger (also known as the Bengal tiger) is about 3 meters long, and weighs approximately 180-285 kg (400-569 LB). It’s coat lies flatter than that of the Siberian tiger, the tawny color is richer and the stripes are darker.
White tigers are white colored bengals, they are not albinos and they are not a separate subspecies of tigers.
They have blue eyes, a pink nose, and creamy white furr covered with chocolate colored stripes. White tigers are born to tigers that carry the unusual gene needed for white coloring. Wild white tigers are rare species.
They are usually located on the Mainland of Southeastern Asia and in central and southern India.  Those living on islands have almost disappeared, most now live in zoos or special wildlife parks.
Even though it is illegal, white tigers are hunted by poachers in many Asian countries.
