White Tiger Cubs Make Their Debut In Austrian Zoo

Posted: Updated:

AUSTRIA- Some very cool cats make their public debut at a zoo in Austria.

It's not just the blue eyes and fair hair that make these one-month-old white tiger cubs a rare breed.

Quintuplets are uncommon among white tigers.

When large litters do occur, they rarely survive.

The cubs, Lila, Lulu, Lela, Lali and Obama ... Were introduced to the public at the White Zoo in the Austrian mountains.

Zoo owner Herbert Eder says he feels like a proud papa.

"It was like, I am the father! Because it was so great we couldn't believe it (at) first. We had four cubs and two hours later the fifth was coming. And then we were really happy because all cubs were moving, were running to their mother, drank milk in the first five hours. And now you see we have very great wonderful white tigers," said Eder.

"It's very seldom that white tigers get five tiger cubs. And they are still alive. That is the big problem. Sometimes they get five but then they die. But in this case we had five cubs born on the 25th of April and all five cubs are very okay," added Eder.

White tigers are native to India and Bangladesh, but several hundred have been bred in zoos and parks around the world.
