South China Tiger Cub

All the chat on my comments about cougars recently made me notice this other big cat photo. I wondered why this cub was in an incubator - it looks large and healthy! But there is no story....
So i read a bit more from Dr Google and found they are very rare now, bred mainly in captivity.

This cub is the first successful case of the group of multiple births due to artificial breeding in this center in four years...

Now, on my next post.. I have another cat for you... one we need to avoid!
