Uthra is a rescued tiger who was saved from the forests of Sathyamangalam when she was abandoned by her mother. She was just a couple of months old at that time and was brought to the zoo. Zoo officials said that she is now seven years old. The gender of the newborn cubs is not stated yet but they all are healthy as per the zoo officials’ statement. It will take at least a week to determine their gender.

However, they all were born healthy but their further care by the mother will decide their survival. Uthra is a new mother and the new mother doesn’t know about feeding babies. This is how a few cubs die due to starvation, the veterinarian said.
The zoo celebrated the tiger’s birth last time in 2015, and it has been so long since then. These cubs were the offspring of a white tigress and a Bengal tiger. This kind of breed is called heterozygous and they have all qualities of Bengal tigers and white tigers.
