Rare white tigers give birth at tourist site

March 28, 2012
LookAtVietnam – After nearly four months of pregnancy, two white tigers recently gave birth to two baby tigers at the Trai Bo tourist site in the central province of Nghe An.

The tourist site’s director, Mr. Nguyen Si Phong, says that the two baby tigers were born on March 21.
The two mother tigers were imported from South Africa in 2010 when they were one and a half years old. The tigers have grown very well at the Trai Bo tourist site.
Mr. Bui Hong Thuy, director of the Indochina Zoo Service JS Company, says that this is the first time white tigers have delivered baby tigers in Vietnam.
The white tiger is a recessive mutant of the Bengal tiger, with white hair and black stripes, blue eyes and pink nose. They are nearly extinct in the nature.
In Vietnam, there are five pairs of white tigers bred at ecological tourist sites in Sai Gon, Binh Duong and Nghe An.
