Endangered Amur Tiger Gives Birth To Three Healthy Cubs

The Toronto Zoo has announced that one of its endangered Amur tigers has given birth to three cubs.

After 104 days of pregnancy, Mazyria AKA Mazy gave birth to three young healthy babies who are now being monitored through remote cameras to allow them to bond without being disturbed.

According to the zoo, the first few months of their lives are critical. If all goes well, the cubs will have their first checkup after six to eight weeks.

Mazy was paired with a male tiger as part of a conservation programme. Amur tigers were once considered critically dangered.

Thanks to conservation efforts like these, their status was changed to endangered in 2007.
