In the night of 22 to 23 September white tiger Muba arrived in our quarantine facility. The journey with Piet and Peter went well. Muba is quite anxious, but is calmly exploring the enclosures.
Like Luna and Stella, Muba comes from Slovakia, where she lived since she was a cub. She is now 4 years old. Like the lionesses, she will remain in quarantine for 30 days, to give her some rest and to rule out any diseases or illnesses. To our naked eye she seems healthy. She is a bit cross-eyed, which is common amongst white tigers.
The white tiger is not a species, but a mutation. They do not occur in the wild. As the very light colour is obtained by excessive breeding and inbreeding, many white tigers have clinical deviations.
Muba can be adopted on our website. By adopting her, you do not only support Muba, but also the continuation of Stichting Leeuw!
