The Toronto Zoo says one of its endangered tigers has given birth to three cubs.
The zoo says Mazaria, an Amur tiger, gave birth on Friday night after 104 days of pregnancy.
It states that “Mazi” and her children are doing good work and are being monitored through remote cameras to allow them to be held without bond.
The zoo says the first few months of life are important, assuming the cub will have its first checkup in six to eight weeks.
It states that Mazi was paired with the male tiger Vasili as part of a program to promote conservation.
Amur tigers were previously considered critically endangered, but their status became endangered in 2007.
