Rare white tiger 'Nieve' born in Nicaraguan zoo

NICARAGUA (WABC) -- Enjoy this little dose of cuteness!

Veterinarians are caring for the first white tiger born in captivity in Nicaragua.

9-day-old Nieve, which means "snow" in Spanish, was rejected by its mother after she was unable to produce milk.

So vets are feeding the cub instead, every three hours.

Nieve's parents are Bengal tigers with yellow fur and black stripes.

Nieve inherited the rare white fur from its maternal grandfather.
