A tiger cub born at Dehiwala Zoo

Oct 24, 2010 12:25:51 PM - itnnews.lk

A tiger cub has been born at the Dehiwala zoo.

The cub was born to a Bengali tigress which was one of the 3 animals brought from China under an animal exchange programme in 2007. The Sri Lanka National Zoological Gardens said that the mother has rejected the cub and therefore it is being artificially fed. Although the tigress has given birth to 3 cubs earlier they have all died within several days due to distortions in the internal organs.
