(Rochester, N.Y.)-County Executive Maggie Brooks announced Friday that two white tigers will visit the Seneca Park Zoo for summer 2009.

The white tiger exhibit will mark the eleventh year of the Visiting Summer Animal program, which allows the public to view an animal not normally on display at Seneca Park. Past visiting summer exhibits have included bears, baboons, lions, warthogs, and other animals.

“The Visiting Summer Animal Program at Seneca Park Zoo is something that our community looks forward to each year,” Brooks said. “The white tigers are certain to be a popular attraction, throughout the summer, and will further enhance the quality of the visitor experience at our zoo.”

White tigers originate from the Bengal tiger, and result when both parents have a recessive white gene.

The tigers will be on display from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.
