The first-ever albino tiger cub of Bangladesh is doing well at Chittagong Zoo

On July 19, Royal Bengal Tigers Raj and Pori had given birth to three cubs at the Chittagong Zoo, and two of them survived. One of them is Bangladesh's first-ever white tiger cub.

According to zoologists and wildlife experts, albinism is the congenital absence of any pigmentation or colouration in a person, animal or plant, resulting in white hair and pink eyes in mammals.

The female cub is yet to be named.
