Tiglets!


Tiglets!
this is cute
(Don't Know if this is true or not didn't bother to snopes it cuz its cute)
(It's going to be a little difficult to explain 'the birds & the bees')
How sweet is this? In a zoo in California,
a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs.
Unfortunately, due to complications in the pregnancy,
the cubs were born prematurely and due to their tiny size,
died shortly after birth.
The mother tiger started to decline in health, although physically she was fine.
The veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter had caused
the tigress to fall into a depression.
The doctors decided that if the tigress could surrogate
another mother's cubs, perhaps she would improve.
After checking with many other zoos across the country,
the depressing news was that there were no
tiger cubs of the right age to introduce to th e mourning mother.
The veterinarians decided to try something
that had never been tried in a zoo environment.
Sometimes a mother of one species will take
on the care of a different species.
The only "orphans" that could be found quickly
were a litter of wiener pigs.
The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the piglets
in tiger skin and placed the babies
around the mother tiger.
Behold the cutest pictures EVER!
