Double-trouble: Tiger gives birth to twin cubs - one yellow and one white

Cubs 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 colors - 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 colors.

Zoo workers were stunned when Jinliang (left) and Yinshuai were born with
two entirely different colors.

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.

The Bengali tiger is the most common tiger subspecies and is the national
animal of both Bangladesh and India.
