Default Animals: White Bengal Tiger, Namaste

The relatively small town of Hilo, Hawaii has a small but thriving Zoo located in the Panaewa Rain Forest. Perhaps the only zoo located in a tropical rainforest.
Its prized possession is a white Bengal Tiger named "Namaste." It's a gift from Dirk Arthur a magician at the Tropicana Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. He was so impressed by the facility planned for the white tiger at the zoo that instead of selling it to them he donated it to the zoo.
Namaste is 14 years old.

Quite a critter to introduce to the island, I think it is best that he stays in the zoo and has no way to reproduce.
