Tiger Gives Birth To Lifeless Cub, Then Her Mother's Instincts Kick In

Rarely seen birthing process was put on display recently when Kaitlyn the Sumatran tiger gave birth to two little male cubs.

Unfortunately, things got off to a rocky start with the first cub as it struggled to breathe when welcomed into the world.

Thankfully, Kaitlyn's motherly instincts kicked in and she did a few tiger-like tricks to get her baby's lungs open.

Sadly, the Sumatran tiger is one of the most critically endangered animals. Recent figures estimate there are only 400-600 wild Sumatran tigers left in the world.

Thankfully, Kaitlyn acts like an old pro and begins licking the first cub immediately after he's born. Licking stimulates the cub's lungs, encouraging him to start breathing on his own. But, even as Kaitlyn licks her first cub, it gasps for air. She doesn't give up! The new mother vigorously cleans her newborn until he's able to pull in a full breath of air.
