Bengal Tigers
Old 27-01-2011

I read the article posted here about how the Bengal Tigers were bing phased out and was wondering if anybody could tell me what zoos in the US still exhibit them because ISIS seems way off on what they say. Thanks

according to the international studbook, there are NO bengal tigers in America (at least no pure bred). Maybe the mean those "white bengal tigers", but i don't know where they are exhibited in the states.

According to ISIS there are some in the US just not many the only one saying they have them is the Alabama zoo. I was just trying to find some others.

To many lay people, ANY tiger is a 'Bengal Tiger'; the concept is somehow embedded in the English language. The white tigers were originally pure Bengal [Indian], but were extensively croosed with Siberians to get a bigger and more impressive animal. It may well be that the only pure Bengals are in India.
