BA city zoo shows off white tiger cubs
Triplet white bengal tiger cubs — a species that is extinct in the wild — were presented to the public for the first time yesterday at the Buenos Aires City Zoo, where they were born three months ago. “Two female and one male cub were born, each weighing around one kilogram,” said City Zoo veterinarian Miguel Pérez, who explained that there are practically no white tigers in the wild, and that most of them live in natural reserves or zoos. The White Bengal tiger gets its rare white colour from a recessive gene. The species normally has orange fur.
