We’ve mentioned before that we will continue to support the baby tiger cause on this site, if only because we feel they always get second billing to baby pandas, despite being evolutionarily superior. China Daily has an absolutely adorable photo gallery up on its site of South China tiger cubs that were bred in Henan province. Four cubs were born at the Wangcheng zoo in Luoyang in April, and now that they’re two-months-old and doing very well, they are being called “a major breakthrough in the artificial breeding technique of the endangered species.” The LATimes had more info about this specific tiger breed, noting that South China tigers are physically smaller than their Bengal and Siberian tiger cousins and with more widely spaced stripes. Chairman Mao was not a fan of them, ordering them eliminated because they were “pests.” Their number plummeted in the following years and they were thought to be extinct until one was spotted in the wild for the first time in decades in 2007. Go tigers!
