White Tigers Get New Mom

When hurricane Hannah separated two white tigers from their mother, Anjana came to the Rescue. Anjana, a chimp at TIGERS in South Carolina, became surrogate mom and playmate to the cubs, even helping with bottle feeding, according to The Sun. But here's the truly amazing part: This is something Anjana does all the time, having helped raised leopard and lion cubs on several occasions.

  3. So good for both species. As a news reporter, I did several stories on white tigers housed nearby and was privileged to interact with cubs on several occasions. They are an amazing animal. The adults were so curious I've always had a soft spot for them. Thanks for these lovely photos.
