Tiger gives birth to twin cubs - one yellow and one white

Twin tiger cubs - one yellow and one whiteCubs Jinliang and Yinshuai aren't any ordinary twins. Workers at Tianjin Zoo, China were shocked when the pair were born - because they arrived into the world in completely different colours - yellow and white.

The furry feline's mother Meimei was a mixed blood tiger - and it seems each of her offspring has unusually inherited each of her different colours.

The yellow cub has the hue of a common Bengali tiger - but the animal genetics would normally make the birth of his white brother virtually impossible. The twins were born on May 31st.
