The White Tiger is a large and powerful animal that can weigh up to 300kg and reaches more than 3 meters in length. These beautiful tigers are often much larger than their orange brothers and sisters. Males are larger than females. White tigers have a distinctly pink nose, blue eyes and of course a white or creamy colored fur with black or dark brown stripes that run vertically along it's body. The actual colour depends on where in the world the tiger is situated.
REMEMBER With their appearance, they are often characterized as albino, but this is not true. An albino tiger would be pure white, without the stripes.
Behaviour Like other Tiger species, the White Tiger is a solitary animal as this allows this large predator to sneak up on prey more effectively in the dense jungle. Although the White Tiger is not nocturnal, they do the majority of their hunting at night as this also helps them to hunt more successfully. White Tigers have incredible hearing and sight which, along with their stealth, helps them when hunting in the jungle in the dark. Each Tiger occupies a large territory that is marked by claw marks on trees, and can be up to 75 square miles in size.
The White Bengal tigers eat water buffalo, goat, deer and wild boar. Their diet in captivity is mainly chicken, horsemeat or kangaroo meat five days a week. They also fast on bones twice a week in captivity.
