| WHITE TIGER FACTS
White tigers are born to Bengal tigers that carry an unusual gene needed for white coloring. The White Tiger is a good swimmer, but a very poor climber.
They may be slow runners, but they are stealthy enough to catch any prey in their sights. Because they are solitary animals, they mostly hunt at night.
The other four sub-species of tiger are Siberian, South China, Indochinese, and Sumataran. There are only approximately 5,000 to 7,400 tigers left in the wild.
It is belief that if you are born in the Chinese year of the tiger you are unusually lucky. Letís hope that some of this luck rubs off on the white tiger before itís too late.
