Enjoy these incredible photos of a White Bengal Tiger named Odin. Amazing White Tiger Swimming 1 Odin is six years old and 10 feet long from tail to nose. Odin lives at a Zoo in Vallejo, California, near San Francisco. Amazing White Tiger Swmming 2 Odin with his British trainer Lee Munro. Amazing White Tiger Swimming 3 Odin was hand-raised at the zoo. And after he was weaned, his British trainer Lee Munro discovered his remarkable skill. Amazing White Tiger Swimming 4 When a lump of meat was thrown into a pool of water, Odin would happily dive in after it. 'He makes a funny face - and it's actually to close his nostrils to stop the water from going into his nose.' Amazing White Tiger Swimming 5 Not all big cats enjoy the water but for Tigers from the hot climate of South-East Asia it's one way to cool down. Amazing White Tiger Swimming 6 'Plus they hunt in and around water. They're an ambush predator so they wait for prey to come down to the water.' Amazing White Tiger Swimming 7 'When you actually see him dive underwater he looks so graceful,' Amazing White Tiger Swimming 8 'Odin loves the water and he loves food,' he said. 'Not all big cats will dive and swim underwater even for meat treats.' Amazing White Tiger Swimming 9 Munro said tigers were the most powerful swimmers out of all land-dwelling animals. Amazing White Tiger Swimming 10 Tragically, within our lifetimes, zoos might be the only places left to see these magnificent animals. Amazing White Tiger Swimming 11 A century ago there were about 100,000 tigers in the wild.. Now there are just 2,500 adults, with the Bengal variety almost extinct. None has been seen in the wild since the last white tiger was shot and killed in 1958. Amazing White Tiger Swimming 12 White tigers are the most rare. They get their whitecolor from an unusual and extremely rare genetic combination. Amazing White Tiger Swimming 13 I hope you enjoyed these photos as much as I did.
