One of the most natural and precious moments for any parent in life is giving birth.
In relation to the animal kingdom there are of course, numerous methods which evolution has developed for them to bring babies into the world.
Most of us will be familiar with dogs and cats, for example since we’ve witnessed personally or on TV. However when it comes to animals like tigers it’s an entirely different concept.
Tiger’s habits are extremely fascinating, thankfully a recent video which has surfaced online shows an enormous tiger giving birth to two cubs.
The clip has also proved to be an online sensation, as people get ready to enjoy a breathtaking moment …
The birth occurred at an Australian zoo, where zookeepers monitored the mother for some time. The Sumatran tiger, called Kaitlyn, can be see delivering two male cubs.
When it comes to these situation a big emphasis is placed on ensuring the mother survives, as well as keeping an eye out for complications that may arise during the process of delivery. In this instance, staff at the zoo’s were keening watching to make sure everything accordingly.
However things got off to a rocky start as the first cub struggled to breathe once it arrived into the world.
Shortly after Kaitlyn delivers her first cub, you can see there’s a thin layer of film around its body. This helps the birthing process as it provides a smoother exit from the mother’s womb. Tiger moms lick the film off within seconds after the birth.
Exhausted Kaitlyn rolls on to her side even though the task isn’t over with just yet. There is one more baby to deliver, although this is proving a little easier.
The second cub was in fact already kicking his legs before he was completely out of the womb. He breathes perfectly within moments of being delivered.
Two new healthy new cubs were introduced, marking an important step regarding the conservation efforts in place to keep these tigers safe.
Sumatran tigers like Kaitlyn are on the critically endangered list, with their numbers thought to stand between 400 and 600. Although two might not seem like such a significant number, it’s two more that will hopefully go on to breed and produce their own offspring.
