[InKunming--Kunming] The 14-year-old white tiger named "Zhenzhen" gave birth to sextuplets at Yunnan Wild Animal Park on August 27th 2017. Six little white tigers grow up well with the help of working staff’s several month care. The good news is that they can meet with the public on January 16th.

It is rare for the white tiger mother to give birth to 6 children and it occurred for the first time at Yunnan Wild Animal Park. The white tiger babies have dark brown or black stripes and milky white hair. Although they have reached weighs of 10 kilograms, they cannot leave their mother when strangers close to them.

In fact, white tiger is a pigmentation variant of the Bengal tiger, which scatters in Yunnan China, Myanmar, India and Bangladesh so on. The first white tiger was found in India. The white tiger is too conspicuous to survive in wild field. Currently, wild white tiger has already extincted and the existing ones rely on artificial breeding.
