Rare Amur Tigers Born At Ukrainian Zoo

A zoo in Yalta in Ukraine's Crimea region is boasting the arrival of two new Amur tiger cubs. Also known as the Siberian tiger, the Amur -- the largest tiger subspecies -- came close to extinction in the 1960s. Now, only a few hundred of them live in the wild. The cubs are the offspring of a Bengal tiger father and an Amur mother and will be sent to a zoo in Hungary on exchange. (Reuters)
