White Bengal Tigers

Bengal tigers live in India and are sometimes called Indian tigers. They are the most common tiger and number about half of all wild tigers. Over many centuries they have become an important part of Indian tradition and lore.

White Bengal tigers eyes are usually blue, but may be green or amber. There are several hundred captive White Bengal tigers worldwide (this number increases annually), all of whom can trace their ancestry back to 'Mohan', a White Bengal tiger caught in Rewa, India in 1951.

White Tigers are a mixture of Bengal have pink noses, white-to-creme colored fur and black, grey or chocolate-coloured stripes. White Tigers are born to Bengal tigers that carry unusual gene needed for white coloring.
The White Tigers are very good swimmers, but a very poor climber. They may be slow runners, but they are stealthy enough to catch any prey in their sights. The White Tiger is a solitary animal, they mostly hunt at night. 
Tigers do not live in prides as lions do. They do not live as family units because the male plays no part in raising his offspring. Tigers live alone and aggressively scent-mark large territories to keep their rivals away. They are powerful nocturnal hunters that travel many miles to find buffalo, deer, wild pigs, and other large mammals.
Tigers use their distinctive coats as camouflage (no two have exactly the same stripes). They lie in wait and creep close enough to attack their victims with a quick spring and a fatal pounce. A hungry tiger can eat as much as 60 pounds (27 kilograms) in one night, though they usually eat less.
In 2010, the population of wild Bengal tigers in the Indian subcontinent is estimated to be fewer than 2,500. Of these, 1,165–1,657 are found in India, 200–419 in Bangladesh, mostly in the Sunderbans, 100–194 in Nepal and 67–81 in Bhutan. Over the past century tiger numbers have fallen dramatically, with a decreasing population trend.

    The Royal Bengal Tiger is one of the world's most beautiful cats, so see them in the wild and enjoy the holiday of a lifetime at the same time! "Tiger tiger burning bright in the forests of the night what immortal hand or eye could frame thy fearful symmetry?" These magnificent creatures were immortalized in William Blake's poem back in the 19th century. Today, the Bengal tiger still remains a creature of awe and wonder.
