  • Description

    Four rare white tiger cubs went on display to the public at Bristol Zoo on Tuesday (23 June).

    It was the first public outing for the six-week old cubs who haven't been named yet. The cubs take their unusual colouring from their father, Mohan, who was captured in 1951. The Zoo now has ten white tigers -- the largest collection outside India where 11 are known to be in captivity.

    The White Tigers are not albinos and have strips like their normally coloured relatives -- but where the ordinary tiger has amber colouring the Bristol Zoo collection have cream fur.

    The Zoo plans to eventually sell the cubs or exchange them for animals from other Zoos. In the meantime the cubs are proving a big attraction for Bristol Zoogoers and quite a handful for their keepers.
