|White Tigers are magnificent creatures that possess an amazing combination of spectacular beauty and impressing power. Bengal tigers, as they are sometimes called, have blue eyes, pink nose, and creamy white fur covered with stripes of a chocolate color. |
White tiger males range in length between 8.8 and 10.2 feet. They weigh between 419 and 569 pounds on the average. Females are smaller, and range in length from 7.11 to 8.7 feet, weighing around 350 pounds.
White tigers are very rare animals. They are seen only in zoos nowadays. These animals are sometimes mistakenly considered to be an albino species of tiger. However, it is not true to fact. White tigers occur when both tigers that mate carry the gene for white coloring. A White tiger's tail reaches the length of 3 to 4 feet.
White tigers tend to inhabit the area from about 10 to 30 square miles where there is enough prey and water to support them. Their habitats are located on the Mainland of Southeastern Asia and in central and southern India. These animals live in grassy areas and forests, which provide them with shelter.
