They have really big territories, usually ranging from about 20 to 30 square miles. Although white tigers usually live alone, white tiger territories can overlap.

Killing a white tiger is considered taboo. They are never hunted down for any reason, not even those that prey on humans is left alone. White tigers possess the same traits as the dire tiger described in True20 Bestiary.
