The New Baby White Tiger Is…Um…Special

A German zoo has released the first video of a new baby white tiger cub born there 8 weeks ago with a genetic defect that caused it to be born with stripes. The zoo has kept the tiger’s birth a secret until now “due to the unlikelihood of its survival.” :( :( :(! But it seems…okay…now. Well, you decide. It’s kind of a…spaz. It’s special. It’s a very special tiger that will teach its handlers about patience and unconditional love, until one day when it eats them by accident because it thinks they’re Skittles.

Oh my god, wait, no: IT’S TIGGER! An actual Tigger has been born!
