Some zoos as well as animal breeders and exhibitors often showcase certain species like that of a white tiger. Yes! Believe it or not tigers also come in white hue. Often, we are familiar with the tigers with orange to yellow fur with patches of black stripes from their head up to the tail. But, even white tigers do exist!

That is why they are often called by the name, “Snow White” or “Pure White.” But such tigers are not really a sub species. They are the result of interbreeding between two tigers with a gene that controls their coats color.   It is really very interesting to see a tiger that is covered in a white coat.
