baby bengal (hybrid) tigers

Born here to a white mother and heterozygous orange father. They breed these (often producing whites) nonstop, which is likely one reason they are no longer AZA accredited. I have also noticed all of their cats (not just tigers) go in the nursery and are not mother raised. Not sure if they are all rejected by the mothers or if the zoo does this to allow visitors to see cute babies up close in the nursery?

      Holy crap! I just read your post and double checked and I guess they did lose their accreditation. I was always skeptical of them. Disappointing since they have many endangered species.
