Four white tiger cubs were born in a zoo in Japan. Tobu Zoo in Saitama, northwestern Japan This week they are celebrating a new addition: four white tiger cubs were born at once.
Their parents are also white. Mom’s name is Carla, and his name is Rocky.
In the wild, such animals practically do not survive because of their unusual color. It prevents them from hunting.
Scientists say that white tigers are the same Bengal tigers, just with a special pigmentation caused by a mutation. That is, they are not albinos. Their stripes are black-brown, and their eyes are blue. By the way, albinos are red.
Ordinary orange tigers can have both normal and white cubs. But whites have only cubs of the same color as their parents.
It is estimated that between 100 and 200 of these tigers live in the wild around the world.
Most of these unusual felines live in zoos around the world. There are 30 of them in captivity in Japan.
So far, newborn tiger cubs have been left only with their mother. They must get stronger.
The kids will be shown to the public no earlier than April this year. Then they plan to announce a competition for the best names.
