Three rare Sumatran tiger cubs born at Indonesia zoo

- +

A critically endangered Sumatran tiger has given birth to three cubs at an Indonesian zoo, a veterinarian at the facility said Wednesday. 

Three four-week-old cubs at Medan Zoo in northern Sumatra on November 14. Manis, a 14-year-old critically endangered Sumatran tiger, gave birth to the three cubs on October 18, just over a year after she bore three male cubs.

"She gave birth naturally, without human intervention. The three cubs are all healthy. Two are male, while we haven't been able to get close to the other to identify it," Suci Terawan, a vet at Medan Zoo in northern Sumatra, told AFP.
