STAR Day at a Glance | Saturday, September 8, 2018
Two tiger cubs enjoying the warmth and company of their mother at Chittagong Zoo. Three cubs were born to tiger couple Raj-Pori on July 19, but the lone male died the next day after being accidentally crushed under the tigress. Of the two surviving female siblings, one is white, otherwise known as albino. Acting deputy curator of the zoo, Dr Shahadat Hossain Suvo, says this is the first time a white tiger has been born in Bangladesh. These rare tigers are usually categorised as partial or full albino, with the latter being rarer. The eye colour differentiates between a full albino (blue) and a partial albino (green or yellow). This one is a full albino. Photo: Rajib Raihan
