Thai zoo unveils white tiger cubs
BANGKOK (AP) - Bangkok's zoo has unveiled new arrivals to its white Bengal tiger
family - a pair of white-and-black striped cubs named "One" and "Two."
The Dusit Zoo held a photo opportunity Thursday for the 50-day-old female cubs,
who were born Nov. 16.
Zookeeper Noppadon Tiptanya says it is the sixth time the cubs' 15-year-old mother
has given birth in captivity at the zoo. Female white tigers generally produce a litter of between one and four
The zookeeper says the cubs are being fed on mother's milk to ensure their early
upbringing is as natural as possible.
The cubs will be presented to the public on Saturday, when Children's Day is
celebrated in Thailand.Source: The Star
