Details: This poster shows a white tiger walking forward.
A white tiger is a tiger with a genetic condition that nearly eliminates pigment in the normally orange fur, though they still have dark stripes. Another genetic condition also makes the stripes of the tiger very pale. White tigers of this type are called snow-white or pure white. Compared to orange tigers without the white gene, white tigers tend to be larger both at birth and at full adult size. The unusual coloration of white tigers has made them popular in zoos and entertainment that showcases exotic animals. The magicians Siegfried & Roy are famous for having bred and trained two white tigers for their performances, referring to them as royal white tigers perhaps from the white tiger's association with the Maharaja of Rewa.
