    Default Tiger Cub Goes from the Hospital to the Kiddie Pool


    In September of 2010 the Pittsburgh Zoo welcomed a litter of little tiger cubs. Shortly thereafter, one of the cubs developed an infection and was hospitalized for weeks as Zoo vets struggled to save her life. Happily, by December the cub was happy and healthy and ready to be reunited with her siblings and mom. Since tiger cubs love to rough-house, keepers wrestled with the little cub to prepare her for the reintroduction. When they put out a tray of water for the active, thirsty cub, she decided to jump right in for more play time.


    The “menacing” look on the cub’s face represent typical play behavior that helps prepare wild young cubs for hunting in the wild.

    Cute baby, but I'm not sure if I buy that that's a playful face he's making.

    Well, I wouldn't stick my hand or face down there to find out. She is remarkably beautiful though.

    I have a thing for big cats. I just love them. In my town we have a place called Cat Tales. It is kind of a zoo but, it is more of a college/higher education place. The people who work there are all basically paying a lot of money to do so - kind of like an internship/fellowship. They take in rescues, old circus animals. Anyway about 10 years ago, they had a litter of white siberian tiger cubs. If I could have lived there, I would have. Such a cool place.
    Silence may be golden but, duct tape is cheaper.

    She looks more pissed off than playful.
