What Color Eyes Do Baby Tigers Have?

While newborn tigers are born with closed eyes, when the eyes do open, which typically happens about 10 days after the tiger is born, their eyes are blue. Most tigers lose this coloring as they age, though some tigers, such as white tigers, can have blue eyes into adulthood. For those adult tigers whose eyes do not retain their blue hue past infancy, this iris is typically a golden yellow color.
