Baby White Tiger Triplets Make Their Debut at Crimea Zoo
The public has just gotten its first glimpse of three rare, white Bengal tiger cubs. Born earlier this month, they call a Crimean safari park their home.
It's three times the cuteness as the public has just gotten its first glimpse of three rare, white Bengal tiger cubs.
Born earlier this month, they call a Crimean safari park their home.
The park's Taigan Lions Park's' chief zookeeper, Leokadia Perevalova, called their birth important, since the park is trying to protect the white Bengal tiger from extinction.
"Two of them are boys ... And the girl is in the center, she's a little smaller," Perevalova said. "The little ones are developing really well, their mom feeds them well. She looks after them. We are very happy about this addition. Especially since it's a Bengal tiger."
Poaching and deforestation are two factors leaving fewer tigers left in the wild. Right now, there are only an estimated 5,000 to 7,000 left.
When the 20th century began, that number stood at 100,000.
