The legendary white tiger. The tiger of choice for Indian royalty. A rare cat stalking through the jungle…well, not so rare anymore. There are several hundred around the world and their numbers are growing. Why? Zoos and animal attractions know they are a big hit with the public and so pursue selective breeding to create white tigers.
But white tigers are not albinos. Even the whitest of the tigers, stripeless tigers, have a faint pattern of stripes. And did you know that their white fur changes with temperature? The color gets creamier when the air is cold!
