I still haven't seen one. They're not a common sight in a zoo in the UK.
Why can't this be left blank?

Firstly white tigers are not a seperate species, they are merely a bengal tiger with a gene that gives their lighter appearance. White tigers have no conservation value as they are all inbred and generally have genetic defects that makes them unsuitable for breeding programmes. Cleft palletes and bone problems are common as fathers are bred with daughters and mothers with sons. Anyone who is intentionally breeding them is doing so purely for financial gain. don't support people who do this.

For more endangered species information go to http://www.arkive.org
Its free and packed with BBC and National Geographic film clips for educational use

My favorite would have to be the gray wolf, has been ever since I was little and I have had them come into my camp while out camping. Oh and they are far from being a pest, domestic dogs that have gone wild are MUCH worse than any wolf. Funny thing is the wolves seem to get blamed for all attacks on live stock when its generally more common for domestic dogs to attack the live stock. But hey everyone likes their scape goats.

Oh and while its not a wolf I did get to see this fella this last week, an Amur Leopard, the rarest cat on the planet there are less than 40 left in the world.

@phillips78: They are still rarer than conventional tigers because of where they can successfully live. Besides the definition of a species is a bit of a grey area among biologists.

I'm also a big fan of tigers, and snow leopards too. Big cats are the coolest.
