They live actually in the former State of Rewa, which includes Mukundpur (Madhya Prades), Bandhavgarh (Madhya Prades), Sundarbans (West Bengal), Nilgiri Hills (Tamil Nadu), Kaziranga (Assam). Out side India, we can mark their existence in Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh.

I have seen this beauty of the nature, when I visited to Nandankanan Zoological Park. It is a zoo and botanical garden in Bhubaneswar, Odisha (a state in India). Interestingly, the zoo enjoys a good reputation internationally for successfully breeding of black panthers, gharilas and white tigers.

There were three white tigers born in the Nandankanan zoo, which was so surprising birth. Their parents were an orange feathered pair, Deepak and Ganga, who were not related to any other white tiger. It might be that one of their wild caught ancestors would have carried this recessive white gene, which showed up in those babies. There is one more tigress living in the zoo, called Diana, who has been taken from the Delhi Zoo.
