White tigers are distinct for the normal coloration in that they lack the pheomelanin pigment that in normal tigers produces the orange color. They still produce the other color pigment, eumelanin, and hence are not considered albino. Regardless, one has to think that they have a hard time in the wild. Their lack of normal pigment makes them stand out too much.

yeah, true, very few animals actually live as albinos in the wild
so true..kinda makes you wonder about the fate of albino animals in general (i know you said these bengals aren't albino, but they're still white)
