White Bengal Tiger
Diet and Prey
White Tigers have incredible hearing and sight which, along with their stealth, helps them when hunting in the jungle at night.
The White Tiger primarily hunts large, herbivorous animals including Deer, Wild Boar, Cattle and Goats that feed both in the jungle and on its outskirts.
Why is it threatened?
The White Tiger have been captured and hunted for their beauty, and have lost a significant chunk of their historical range to deforestation for both growing human settlements and agriculture. With the loss in forest, there is also a decline in the White Tiger's prey so populations are becoming increasingly harder to sustain.
