Three 16 year old female Bengal Tigers at Miami Metro Zoo. The white is not related, the two orange tigers are sisters. Bengal tigers live to about 20 in captivity. White is a color only found in Bengal tigers. It is a recessive gene. Only 1 in 10,000 Bengals are born white, making them almost non existent in the wild. There are no known white tigers in the wild, however there are many in captivity due to selective breeding.
