A near stripeless tiger also known as a “snow tiger, is likely a color only found in captive tigers—normally of the Bengal variety as those are most common in animals parks and zoos.
While lovely in appearance, as I’ve discussed before they are genetically compromised. Most unusually colored tigers in captivity are bred purposefully to attract larger audiences to zoos and other captive animal parks. Inbreeding is very common in captive tigers, so many interesting looking creatures like this suffer from a long list of ailments from blindness to immune system disorders. If you claim that white tigers are your favorite animal, please consider the strain of their lives and how unhealthy they are. White tigers not rare or endangered, as they are not a breed of tiger, only a color they are can be. So, support responsibly bred tigers, or better yet help protect the dwindling wild population of all tiger subspecies!
