Storyline


Six South China tiger cubs born in January are in good health and growing stronger by the day at a zoo in Luoyang City, central China's Henan Province.

The six cubs, three male and three female, were born to two mothers on Jan 10 and 11 at the Wangcheng Park Zoo in Luoyang, which was extremely rare that multiple births of the endangered species were seen in two days in a single zoo.

The cubs have since been taken care of by zoo keepers.

"After almost two months of artificial feeding, the average weight of the tiger cubs already exceeds 2.5 kilograms. Currently, the six tiger cubs are all in good health. They have lots of exercise and are all quite spirited," said Liu Zhaoyang, deputy head of zoo.

Keeper Wang Huiqin said it is a lot of work to feed the cubs, but she is happy to do it.

"We feed them six times a day. It's a lot of work but we're very happy to see them getting bigger every day," she said.

Indigenous to China, South China tigers used to live across the country. However, the wild population has sharply shrunk since the 1950s due to loss of habitat, and finally disappeared. It has been listed as a critically endangered species by the IUCN since 1996. Only 177 tigers are alive and dwell in zoos or breeding bases across China, with 38 in Luoyang.

According to Liu, the tiger cubs - if strong enough - are expected to meet the public in about one month.
