Everything begins at birth. Whether you’re experiencing it first hand or witnessing it in person, it’s a moment that changes life forever. Seeing a wild animal give birth is rare. We almost never get to see it up close, whether in the wild or in captivity. But the following video shows a tiger birth in incredible detail.
The pregnant tiger had been having contractions for a while. She was ready to give birth. While most new mothers tend to be aggressive towards any perceived threats, she wasn’t aggressive towards the keeper at all! After a bit of struggle, she gave birth to a tiny cub. The keepers were worried because the cub wasn’t breathing initially, but after few kisses from mom, he began crying. The second deliver wasn’t that bad—the cub came out crying and screaming!
