Names needed for Rare White Bengal Tiger Triplets


Zoo looking for Names for Three Month Bengal Tiger Triplets
Bengal White Tiger Cub
Three month old triplet Bengal white tigers are in need of names according to the Buenos Aires Zoo.  Since their public debut, the zoo has been swamped with over 5,000 suggestions placed in the box.

The stunningly beautiful trio have piercing blue eyes and beautiful coats. Two female cubs are white with black stripes and the male is almost pure white.

They were a second set of cubs born December 23, to mother, Cleo and Father, Rhiano. The original cubs were taken to another zoo, and these cubs will probably follow suit.

The cubs weighed 2 pounds at birth and currently weigh about 13 pounds each. They will breast feed for two more months and discontinuing at five months old.  They currently eat a kilogram of meat a day.

The cubs exotic beautiful coloring is a result of both parents having a recessive gene for the white coloration. Although beautiful, they are rare in the wild, due to inability to blend in while catching prey.

+Marietta Vet Clinic and veterinarian +Julian Peckich DVM offer affordable pet vaccinations in Marietta, GA for both dogs and cats alike.  It would be their great pleasure to welcome your pet to the clinic for pet vaccinations, dog vaccinations, cat vaccinations, pet sick care, pet microchipping, dog teeth cleaning, cat teeth cleaning, spay and neuter and more.
