White tiger's are not "true albinos": real albinos have red eyes, but white tiger's eyes are blue.

White tiger's are breathtakingly beautiful. They have a snow-white fur and strong, bright blue eyes. They differ from normal tiger's because fur, skin and eyes cannot form red and yellow pigments. However, they are not albinos, for those always have red eyes. White tiger's usually live in zoos because in the wild they would have little chance of survival. Because their fur is missing the camouflage, prey would discover them quickly and run away early enough.

Fun Fact

Only one in 10,000 tiger cubs is white.
