Tiger quadruplets born in Berlin zoo
Mon, 03 Oct 2011 2:36p.m.
The Indochinese Tigers (Panthera tigris corbetti) in the Berlin Tierpark have proudly presented their offspring – seven-week-old quadruplets.
The cubs have been named after areas or rivers in their native habitat – Cambodia, Thailand, Burma and Vietnam.
An estimated 420 to 1,000 of the tigers live in the wild.
The females are Thaya, Salween and Mandalay. Their baby brother is Lampun.
Despite the fact that cats are regularly born in the Berlin Tierpark, quadruplets are a rarity.
The last litter born in the zoo was in 1988.
