[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
White tigers(Also Panthera Tigris) can are different from true albino tigers by their stripes. These are normal tigers which lack the orange colour pigmentation in their skins. But quite surprisingly are a tad bigger than their coloured counterparts, giving them edge in the wild despite the colouration of their hide.

It has to be noted that true albinos have not been found among modern tigers for quite sometime, while we can see many white tigers.
