New-Born Tiger cubs
A tigress gives birth to a live litter after a gestation time (the tigress' gestation period is roughly three and a half months). A live litter normally consists of three or four new born tiger cubs, although up to seven can be produced in a litter. Tiger cubs have a high mortality rate, with only around half of those born surviving to adulthood.
