White Bengal tiger at Miami Metro Zoo.

16 year old female white Bengal tiger. The Bengal is the only tiger in the world that is known to carry the recessive white gene. They do occur in nature in one out of 10,000 births, but are more common due to selective breeding in captivity. They are so rare in the wild that there are no known white Bengals any more.
