WYLIE (KRLD) - A rare white tiger cub born at the animal sanctuary called In-Sync Exotics in Wylie is getting a lot of attention. 

He's named after the Star Wars character Kylo Ren. Angela Culver at In-Sync Exotics says, "When we rescued his parents Assad and Zahra in January, his mother was already pregnant with him. " She says the mom, dad and baby are doing great. 

"Unfortunately, Zahra did not know how to respond to him. At the recommendation of a big cat specialist, with the U.S.D.A, we went ahead and took little Kylo to be raised by hand." She says right now he's up to around three pounds.

"He definitely gets very loud and cries loudly when he's hungry." She says he's very fuzzy and his eyes are baby blue. He's active and does like to sleep a lot. She says white tiger cubs are still quite rare.

She says Kylo will be able to play in an outside enclosure in about three months after he completes his vaccinations.
