London Zoo announces birth of endangered tiger cub
LONDON (AP) - Call it Cub Cam: Hidden cameras have captured the birth of a Sumatran tiger cub, London Zoo's first in 17 years.
The zoo announced on Wednesday that five-year-old tiger Melati had given birth to the cub over the weekend following a six-minute labour.
It said zookeepers had kept Melati's 105-day pregnancy under wraps so they could keep a careful eye on the tiger, installing hidden cameras so as not to disturb the first-time mother.
The cub is the grandchild of the zoo's last tiger cub, Hari - the father of Melati.
