Morning cute: Endangered Sumatran tiger cub born at Frankfurt Zoo

Meet the press: Baby Sumatran tiger Daseep says hello to the world

A female Sumatran tiger thought to be infertile surprised and delighted staff at Frankfurt Zoo by giving birth.

Malea went into labour after a series of what veterinarians believed were unsuccessful fertility treatments. The tiger delivered twins however only one survived, another female who staff named Daseep. The cub was born weighing just under a kilogram.

Sumatran tigers are critically endangered, with estimates suggesting there may be as few as 500 left in the wild. Humans are the main cause of their decline, both indirectly (through habitat loss and fragmentation) and directly, with an illegal trade in tiger parts and human-tiger conflict causing premature deaths.
