White Tiger

Panthera tigris tigris

Description:

White variety of Bengal Tiger. The white tiger is a recessive mutant of the Bengal tiger, which was reported in the wild from time to time in Assam, Bengal, Bihar and especially from the former State of Rewa. A white tiger is caused by the homozygous occurrence of a recessive allele in the genome. Estimations show that around one in 15,000 wild Bengal tiger births will result in a white tiger.

Notes:

Oh my god,you scared me

A (very old picture, 2003) of a animal in captivity, in an Amusement Park would hardly have my admiration. I have tears of sadness for the animal and anger for the people responsible.....

The white tiger is not a mutation. White tigers are born due to a recessive gene that Bengal tigers have.

These are at an underwater viewing area at what use to be called Marine World in Vallejo. It is now called Six Flags. You can see other photos online where visitors took pictures of the Bengal and the White Bengals during feeding time.
But this is a fantastic shot taken by Donna.
