The White Tiger is a mutation of the standard Tiger line, the technical name for which is chinchilla albinistic. While this is very rare in the wild, this is widely seen in zoos simply because this color is popular. White Tigers tend to have blue eyes, and many times their blue eyes are crossed. White Tigers run larger than their naturally colored relatives and may have more health problems as well. White Tigers occur only when both parents carry the rare recessive gene which happens approximately once in every 10,000 births. White Tigers are NOT albino Tigers, they are simply a color variation of the Tiger species.Using our Tiny Ones, specie specific, hand painted detailed heads; we carefully mount a gold plated post and backing so you can display your best friend as a unique pin or tie tack.
