Terrifying Underwater Encounter With The Bengal White Tiger



Terrifying Underwater Encounter With The Bengal White Tiger

Most cats do not like getting wet but there's always the exception to the rule. For the cat in question is a large male white Bengal tiger called Odin.


Six years old, and at the prime of his life, Odin lives at the Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Zoo in Vallejo, near San Francisco. He is about 10ft long from nose to tail, and is an excellent swimmer.

White tigers - the colour is caused by an unusual genetic combination - are rare in the wild, although there are several dozen in zoos.
Odin was hand-raised at the zoo. And after he was weaned, his British trainer Lee Munro discovered his remarkable skill: when a lump of meat was thrown into a pool of water, Odin would happily dive in after it.
