GOLDEN TIGER --- Some Golden Tigers carry the White Tiger gene, and when two such tigers are mated, can produce some stripeless white offspring. Both white and golden tigers tend to be larger than average Bengal tigers.
This is the "Golden" Tiger, displaying a color mutation which has "bleached" its stripes. It is NOT a distinct species of tiger, but rather an accident of captive cross- breeding. Beautiful though they are, these cats, like the popular white tigers, would not do well in the wild because of their bright colouration.
