Newborn Amur Tiger Triplets Give Hope to Most Endangered Tiger Species


Three newly-born Amur tiger cub triplets were seen playing with their parents at their new home in Belogorsk’s Taigan Safari Park on Monday, after the sanctuary welcomed the cuddly cats into this world last week. The newborn triplets represent a major boost to the population as there are only about 500 Amur tigers left in the wild, mostly in Russia's Far East provinces. Amur tigers were once found throughout the Russian Far East, northern China and the Korean peninsula, but were driven to the brink of extinction by the 1940s as a result of hunting. However, Russia granted the tiger full protection soon afterwards and numbers have risen.

  • Amur Tiger Cub Plays With Ferret Friend

    This adorable Amur tiger cub has made an unlikely new, and much smaller friend. The cub, named 'Sherkhan' after the tiger in the jungle book, played with his new friend, a ferret named 'Rokki', much to the amazement of his caretaker. The amusing pair built on their friendship in Shkotovo, in Russia's Far East, where Sherkhan is being raised. Making friends with other animals apparently runs in the family. Sherkhan is the son of a very famous tiger who hit global headlines after he made friends with a goat, 'Timur,' at the Primorski Safari Park in November 2015.
