White Bengal tiger White Bengal tigers are extinct in the wild but there is an estimated 2000 or so in captivity. Like white lions, their lack of camouflage makes it harder for them to hunt successfully and therefore less likely to survive in the wild.

  5. If someone has a pic of "Liger". They should really post it. Its one of the rare hybrid animals on earth. Posted 5 years ago
    1. In my own personal opinion a Liger is ethically wrong and I am happy that it is rare. Lions and Tigers don't even occupy the same continent and therefore crossing them defies all the rules of nature. But that is just me! Posted 5 years ago

The Bengal tiger is the most numerous tiger subspecies. Its populations have been estimated at 1,706–1,909 in India, 440 in Bangladesh, 163–253 in Nepal and 67–81 in Bhutan.
Since 2010, it has been classified as an endangered species by the IUCN. The total population is estimated at fewer than 2,500 individuals with a decreasing trend, and none of the ''Tiger Conservation Landscapes'' within the Bengal tiger's range is large enough to support an effective population size of 250 adult.. more
