Baby Tiger cubs at Natural Bridge Zoo

April 30, 2009

Something rare has happened at the Natural Bridge Zoo.

An orange tiger has given birth to two different species*, a golden tabby and a white tiger.

“They were born on Earth Day. They have already doubled and tripled in size and you can see their fat belly since they just got fed and they are doing extremely well,” says Gretchen Mogenson with the Natural Bridge Zoo.

*There is only one species of tiger in the world – Panthera tigris.

There are nine subspecies, of which three, The Bali, Javan, and Caspian are extinct, with the six remaining being the Amur, Bengal, South China, Indo-Chinese, Malayan and Sumatran.
