Zoo Welcomes New Tiger Cubs

BUFFALO (2007-10-23) The Buffalo Zoo announced Tuesday the births of two endangered Amur tiger cubs.

The male and female cubs were born between October 6 and 7 and each weighed about two pounds. The births are considered a huge success for the zoo. The cubs are the first surviving tiger cubs to be born at the zoo since 1988.

Sungari, the cubs’ mother, continues to take good care of the cubs in an indoor holding area.

The cubs will be off exhibit to the public for at least three months to ensure health development.

Amur tigers, formally called Siberian tigers, are the largest of the tiger species and are native to eastern Russia, northeastern China and northern regions of North Korea.
