Hello Sweetie, welcome to Frankfurt. Enjoy your time there with your family while you may, until they will move you to another zoo for reproducing. Thx!

So sad that what Angelika said is likely what is going to happen to this precious tiger. I did enjoy watching the video.
Thanks Cher! I am in awe every time I see tigers. So beautiful!

She is just the most beautiful thing. Horrible to think there will not be any wild tigers left in the near future.

Very cute. Very depressing that this tiger will never know freedom but only exploitation.

Oh, how sweet is that baby, but what a dreadful place to be born. The poor mother is pacing. They need to return her along with her cub to their native habitat. Thank you!

Beautiful little tiger, but it upsets me each time to hear that they have to leave their mom after a while. But this is the same for dogs and cats.

At least she will not be hunted and she will be well fed and safe
I hate the hunting and murder of tigers so its the lesser of two evils
Thanks Cher

A lovely cub! So sad to know that there are so very few of these magnificent tigers left in the world.

Yes I agree with Angelika. I always feel uneasy about the welfare of animals in zoos. They're completely dependent on human compassion and altruism -- too many humans lack these qualities.

Having just read another posting on the demise of the Sumatran Tiger due to Human activities, I suppose I have to put my scepticism about zoos behind me a bit. It may not be the best option, but it soon maybe the only option to save this species from extinction. And a lot of zoos and wild parks really have the animal's well being at heart and provide them with environment as similar as possible to that in the wild.

I waited too late to watch the video. All I get is a white blank screen boardered in black. But from what the comments tell me, this baby tigeress is going to have a sad life. Thnx Cher.

Beautiful baby. I hope she has a long, healthy and happy life.

It's sad that seems that the only way to help, protect and save this animals is to put them in a zoo....
