A female labrador has taken on the role of mothering a set of tiger twins born at the Nanchang Zoo in Jiangxi Province who were likely to die if left with their mother, according to the Global Times.
The zookeepers said the tiger mother didn’t have enough experience in taking care of the cubs since her three previous babies had died from neglect.
This nice white labrador retriever, with one pup of her own, was selected by the staff to save the lives of the tiger twins by breastfeeding them. The unmistakable glow of motherhood is apparent.
She looks thrilled.
