  • The white tiger is a chinchillated variety, with the yellow pigment completely eliminated and the black pigment altered to a dark speia-brown. The causative mutant gene is inherited as an autosomal recessive and is seemingly a homologue of chinchilla mutants in other mammalian species. It is proposed that the gene be re-symbolized ascch.
