The Sumatran tiger is one of the most critically endangered species in the world, with only 300 to 400 left in the wild. Between rampant poaching and rising deforestation of their natural habitat in Indonesia, those numbers sadly only continue to decline.
So when a new Sumatran cub is born, it’s always a reason for celebration. At the ZSL London Zoo, a pregnant tiger named Melati was due to give birth, and after 108 days of pregnancy, she went into labor. What she delivered, however, was a very pleasant surprise!
