Slideshow: Supposedly Barren Zoo Tiger Produces 5 Cubs
HAMM, Germany — German zookeepers were surprised last week when a female Siberian tiger believed to be barren gave birth to five cubs.

Zoo officials had thought the mother, Shakira, could not have cubs.

But she and the cubs’ father, Eyk, teamed up to produce five healthy cubs.

On the morning the cubs were discovered, the head zookeeper said one of her colleagues excitedly called saying, “I have tigers! I have little tigers!”

There are only 150 Siberian tigers in the world and the zookeepers are ecstatic about having five cubs.

Siberian tigers are on the red list of endangered animals.
