Animal births are always exciting, but when the baby being born is a rarity, the event becomes even more amazing.
In the video below, posted on July 12, 2017, a critically endangered Sumatran tiger named Damai rests inside her enclosure with her newborn.
It is the mother and baby‘s first day together and it is truly a special moment between the two of them. This is their first opportunity to bond and grow together. It’s the first day of the rest of their lives together!
The tiny tiger cub is resting next to his mom, but he soon starts making a fuss.
The tiger cub squirms underneath his mom’s right front leg and starts to scream. He seems like he wants attention and a warm snuggle with his mother.
Luckily, Damai knows just how to handle her little baby. She lets the small tiger cub move closer to her chest. Then, the baby nuzzles himself into her fur underneath her head.
Soon, the adorable tiger cub cuddles his mama until he finally feels better. He completely calms down, thanks to this simple, memorable moment together. Thankfully, this sweet occurrence during their first day together is caught by the zoo’s surveillance camera.
Check out this precious bonding session between the mama and tiger cub in the video below, and please SHARE this story if you think that these two will be close forever!
