While they may look it, white Siberian tigers are not albino. Instead, their fur lacks a specific pigment found in tigers with orange fur. White Siberian tigers are very rare, and the few in captivity are often a result of interspecies breeding with Bengal tigers.
Because of the rarity of white Siberian tigers in the wild,almost all of these creatures were bred in captivity. While thereis a large and sustainable amount of these animals in preserves andzoos around the world, one hasn't been seen in the wild since themid 20th' century. Due to the endangered nature of Siberian tigersas a whole and the species' close similarity to the Bengal variant,white Siberian tigers in captivity are often bred with Bengals,making them only 50% Siberian.
