Malaysia’s oldest zoo shared the happy news on their social media on 1st May and explained that the cubs born on 12th April were “safe and comfortable” with their mother, whom the zookeepers call Baby.

All four tigers are kept sequestered from prying eyes and monitored regularly. The zoo also states that the tiger mum and her babies are well fed.

Baby’s babies will remain with her for 18 months as they grow and develop. The tiger cubs who currently weigh between 700 to 900 grams will be weaned off their mother’s milk when they reach three to four months of age.

Zoo director Dr Kevin Lazarus told The Star that this is the fourth birth of Malayan tigers at the zoo since 2009. In fact, Baby herself was born at the zoo 11 years ago.

With the three new cubs, the Taiping Zoo now has 8 tigers in total.
