Two white striped tigers from Indonesia

No one knows exactly why tigers are striped, but scientists think that the stripes act as camouflage, and help tigers hide from their prey. The Sumatran tiger has the most stripes of all the tiger subspecies, and the Siberian tiger has the fewest stripes. Tiger stripes are like human fingerprints; no two tigers have the same pattern of stripes.

  1. We have white tigers at our zoo and they are my very favorites…especially their baby blue eyes! Nice capture…love the motion blur of the front tiger, that other one is sure keeping an eye on him!

  2. They are wonderful, what a great picture. Love the white tigers.

  3. What a great pair.

  4. What beautiful and magnificent animals these cats are – I’ve never seen this species before. Thank you!
