On April 12th, three-month old white tiger cubs were put on display at Buenos Aires Zoo.  The trio consisted of a male and two females.  White tigers are a color variation of the Bengal tiger, but are not albinos, nor do they constitute a separate species.  Some people think they are Siberian tigers, doubtless because the latter live in the snow, but it is doubtful if a white Siberian tiger has ever been seen.
The gene which makes them white often causes white tigers to be cross-eyed.  They tend to be a little larger than their orange counterparts.
