Zoo Tycoon - White Bengal Tiger Free Papercraft Download

This is the White Bengal Tiger, based on the video game series Zoo Tycoon, the papercraft is created by DrWheelieMobile.

White Bengal Tigers are not naturally found in the wild. The only wild White Bengal tiger documented was Mohan, who was captured in 1951 and bred with a normal Bengal tiger and then bred to one of his daughters which produced the very first White Bengal tigers born in captivity. White tigers are not albino but have a mutation known as leucisum. Leucisum is similar to albinism but less extreme. A leucistic will have faded or full markings, normal or blue eyes, normal skin color, and normal nose color. Leucisum is also double recessive meaning that both parents must carry the gene in order for the offspring to have the white color. As a result White tigers have become extremely inbred and sickly animals. Another side effect of leucisum is that it wires the optic nerve to the wrong side of the brain, making all White tigers cross eyed whether it shows or not.
