This is the most rare photos of white tiger, i got through mail, in order to spread the word “Save Tiger” i am posting this for my blog readers.

 

These are the incredible photos of a White Bengal Tiger named Odin.

Odin is six years old and 10 feet long from tail to nose. Odin lives at a Zoo in  
Vallejo, California, near San Francisco.

Odin with his British trainer Lee Munro. He loves his baby bobbles....LOL

Odin was hand-raised at the zoo. And after he was weaned, his British trainer  
Lee Munro discovered his remarkable skill.

When a lump of meat was thrown into a pool of water, Odin would happily dive  
in after it.
'He makes a funny face - and it's actually to close his nostrils to stop the water  
from going into his nose.'

Not all big cats enjoy the water but for Tigers from the hot climate of South-East  
Asia it's one way to cool down.

'Plus they hunt in and around water. They're an ambush predator so they wait for  
prey to come down to the water.'

'When you actually see him dive underwater he looks so graceful,'

'Odin loves the water and he loves food,' he said. 'Not all big cats will dive and  
swim underwater even for meat treats.'

Munro said tigers were the most powerful swimmers out of all land-dwelling animals.

Tragically, within our lifetimes, zoos might be the only places left to see these  magnificent animals.

A century ago there were about 100,000 tigers in the wild. Now there are just  
2,500 adults, with the Bengal variety almost extinct. None has been seen in the  
wild since the last white tiger was shot and killed in 1958.

White tigers are the most rare. They get their white color from an unusual and extremely rare genetic combination.

I hope you enjoyed these photos as much as I did.
