White Tiger Species Spotlight

White Tiger Species Spotlight

 

In this special edition of Species Spotlight we look at the VERY popular white tiger (which isn’t a separate species of tiger.) White tigers in captivity are produced from inbreeding and they actually weaken the captive tiger gene pool and they do nothing to help real conservation of the tiger. We state the first white was found in the 1950’s as reports earlier to this may or may not have taken place in India.
