Two quintuplets delivered by an Indochinese tiger at the Saigon Zoo and Botanical Garden in February have been put under special care from the zoo’s vets as they were not strong enough to live with the mother. Photo courtesy of Tuoi Tre
Experts said it’s hard for the endangered Indochinese tigress to give birth, and two or three cubs is the usual number per delivery. So the delivery of five clubs, the first at the zoo in more than 20 years, is a rare one, especially when the mother, Mi, is as old as 10. All five babies are female.
