Portrait of the golden tiger by Tambako the Jaguar,: A golden tabby tiger is one with an extremely rare color variation caused by a recessive gene and is currently only found in captive tigers. Like the white tiger, it is a color form and not a separate species. In the case of the golden tiger, this is the wide band gene; while the white tiger is due to the color inhibitor (chinchilla) gene. http://books.google.com/books/about/Golden_Tabby.html?id=bU5OQwAACAAJ #Golden_Tiger
