This rare and intimate footage shows a tigress bonding with her newborn twin cubs for the very first time. Using hidden cameras, zookeepers at Banham Zoo in Norfolk, witnessed mother, Sveta, giving birth to the yet unnamed Amur tiger cubs. The rare footage then shows father, Kuzma, entering the cubbing area to take a glimpse of his young offspring. The birth could also be crucial for the long-term survival of Amur tigers, which number just 400 in the wild.
