BEIJING, March 18 — One-week old Manchurian tiger cubs were laid their stomachs in the warm cabinet in the Heilongjiang Manchurian Tiger Zoo as they were still too weak to stand on their feet.

Feeder Liu Xinmin said that the cubs, two males and one female were born on March 8. They weighed more than 1 kilogram each.

The Heilongjiang Manchurian Tiger Zoo is the world largest Manchurian tiger breeding zoo.

Sound bite: feeder Liu Xinmin, It took six hours for the mother to deliver these three cubs. Their mother doesn’t have milk, so we have to feed them with sheep milk. Now they are very healthy, and add one kilogram each.

The Manchurian tiger is the largest of the world’s tiger breeds. It’s indigenous to northeast China, Siberia and Far East areas.

The Manchurian tiger has been listed as an endangered species.
