GENETICALLY DIFFERENT COLOURED WHITE TIGER CUB

The White tiger cub in a rare black complexion, along with its completely white siblings, is on display for the public to see at the Arignar Anna Zoological Park in Vandalur, Chennai, India.

 

A black tiger is something of a rarity and zoo officials are quite excited by the development. "The colouring might be due to genetic reasons. A black cub is exactly the same as a regular tiger in all aspects, except for its skin colour," said zoo director KSSVP Reddy, who is also chief conservator of forests.
