White Tiger Facts

           White Tiger (Panthera Tigris Tigris) is a subspecies of Tiger which is found throughout the Indian subcontinent. Although the range of the White Tiger is historically very large, these animals are incredibly rare as their coloration is dependent on gene that is passed on from their parents. Over the past couple of centuries the White Tiger has become even rarer in the wild due to mass hunting activities. There have been no recorded sightings of White Tigers for the past 50 years in the wild.          
          The White Tiger is not an albino. The pigment that creates their fur white is the result of the gen carried by the White Tiger’s parents. Like other Tiger species, the White Tiger has black or dark brown stripes that run vertically along its body. Not only its fur which is white, the White Tiger also has blue eyes rather than green or yellow colored eyes of normal tigers. Despite the beauty of the White Tiger's fur, it does in fact give these individuals a disadvantage as they are not so easily camouflaged into the surrounding jungle. 
          Like other Tiger species, the White Tiger is a solitary animal. Although the White Tiger is not nocturnal, they do the majority of their hunting at night. White Tigers have incredible hearing and sight which along with their stealth, helps them when hunting in the jungle in the dark. The White Tiger primarily hunts large, herbivorous animals including Deer and Wild Boar. The White Tiger occupies a large territory that is marked by urine and claw marks on trees. The White Tiger’ territory can be up to 75 square miles in size. Male White Tigers will defend their territory fiercely from other males who may be trying to steal their spot.
          In order for a White Tiger to be produced, both of its parents must carry the same gene. Male and female White Tigers are attracted to one another by their roars and scent marks. After a gestation period that lasts for around 3 and a half months, the female White Tiger gives birth to up to 5 cubs, which are blind and weigh roughly 1kg each. The White Tiger cubs suckle on the milk from their mother and begin to eat meat when they are around 2 months old. The White Tiger cubs begin to accompany their mother hunting and eventually leave her and begin their solitary life in the jungle when they are about 18 months of age. White Tigers have an average lifespan of 12 years, which can be longer in captivity. The White Tiger is listed by the IUCN as endangered species with no sights have been recorded in these past 50 years which means there are no White Tiger individuals known to be found outside of captivity.
