Most of the source information I use is publicly available, and remains the property of the relevant owners.

However, the analysis and presentation of this information is my own original work, incorporating my own thoughts, deductions and statistical analyses based on the source information (except of course where another is credited). I put a great deal of time and effort into this stage of my research, so if you use any of it publicly (for example, on another website) please do the right thing and give credit to whitetigertruths.wordpress.com as the source. This is important, not just for honesty and courtesy, but to enable everyone to see the context and access all the supporting data and the ongoing updates.

Note that photos may be under copyright or license and may require permission to be re-used.

Each person should satisfy themselves as to the correctness of any data used or presented. Where possible I provide links to the source data to enable people to check for themselves. Where possible I trace back to the original or earliest available source to ensure the most accurate information and context. I include non-white-tiger-related information to help show the context and to validate the sources used.

I have endeavored to credit each source by name and/or link – if I have omitted to do so please contact me and I will correct it ASAP.

I am not looking to profit from this in any way – my concern is that white tigers should get a fair deal, and be assessed on ALL the facts, not just partial truths and misinformation.

I can be contacted either by making a comment on one of my articles here on this site, or by messaging the Facebook page: White Tigers – Truth and Myth

  1. Thank you. Thank you for taking the time, and the effort, to compile the information and disseminate in a manner so easy to understand. I have often wished for such an online resource as so many of the books and periodicals are out of date.


  2. Hi, I am a former Chief Wildlife Warden of the state of Madhya Pradesh and have been pushing my state to return the white tiger back to the wild, to the place from where Mohan was captured. Thanks a ton for putting together all the information on the great white. This will strengthen our case immensely. As a part of my wish to see the white back in the wild, I am helping a friend in making an in-house documentary to generate public opinion in its favour. Yours is the first site I have seen which is talking in favour of the white tigers; all others want them to go extinct. We would love to have a short statement from you, on video, that can go into the film. I will deeply appreciate if we could connect over e-mail in this regard. Best Wishes,


    • Hi Dr Pabla, it would be great to see white tigers back in the wild again! I am glad my work is of use to you, and there are many other websites and people also in favour of white tigers. I have sent you an email.


  3. Three white tiger cubs were born in the Great London Circus in 1975 possibly in Waco, Texas. These were a white male named Boris, a white female named Tasha, another white female, and three orange cubs. The parents were Raja and Sheba II belonging to Baron Julius Von Uhl. Some of your information is inaccurate. The Sioux Falls Zoo lineage of white tigers were descended from Mohan. Susie the tigress who had 13-14 cubs at the Sioux Falls Zoo was a descendant of Mohan. She was born in Florida and was the property of Clyde Beatty. She was later paired with a Bengal tiger for breeding and he killed her. She was the mother of Raja and Sheba II.


    • I disagree that Susie was descended from Mohan – or rather, I have yet to see any proof that she was. I have written elsewhere that her origin is not clear. Until I see proof, I’ll stick with that 🙂 I am still building my USA white tiger dataset so have not written much about American white tigers yet. I hope to do so some day.


    • Dear Paul,
      Regarding your other 6 or 7 comments which are stuck in the queue unanswered – I’m sorry, I am not available to debate with you. I am very busy with other matters just now and I prefer to spend my time on research rather than online discussions. I hope you can understand 🙂 My position on Susie is based on a great deal of research, some of which I have not shared yet. The points you raised are valid, and are points I have already considered and researched thoroughly. When I write my “Susie” article, I will present my logic and people can make up their own minds. I don’t insist on everyone agreeing with me, I hope people will think for themselves.

      Regarding the other snippets of information you included, thank you, I have already seen these. I have a huge amount of information assembled behind the scenes and it is just a matter of formatting it all into coherent narratives. I will do so when I am ready. It is clear that you have a strong interest in the subject and that is great to see. However, I like to do my own research in my own way and to my own standards, so please can we leave it at that.
      Kind regards,
