I would like to tell you about a white tiger, which is one of the star attractions in Shanghai Zoo, during my last summer vacation.
I was recommended to see this white tiger first due to its rarity and uncommon beauty. Its habitat in the zoo is landscaped to resemble a dense jungle. I was truly overawed and felt excited at first sight by its gorgeous appearance. This giant cat has blue eyes, a pink nose, and creamy white fur covered with brown stripes. In the wild, this animal's diet consists of monkeys, birds and other animals as it is a carnivore. It also prefers killing young, weak or old animals because they cannot run as fast and are often abandoned by their herd. In the zoo, it is fed on animal flesh, even including imported kangaroo meat.
At the beginning I felt a little bit apprehensive because tigers are well - known as a dangerous species as well as the king of animals. However after encountering this white tiger, I changed my mind since it was very cute and friendly to humans. As tigers in general and white tigers in particular are endangered species, I believe that people should make a great effort to preserve them from extinction.
