OKLAHOMA CITY — A tiger cub who was rejected by her mother at the Philadelphia Zoo can be seen bonding with her adoptive mother and brothers in Oklahoma via live-streaming video.
The Oklahoma City Zoo launched the “Tiger Cub Cam” Thursday, showing Zoya with her new mother, Lola, and brothers Eko, Ramah and Gusti playing, feeding and sleeping indoors. The cubs are expected to move outdoors in mid-September.
Lola gave birth July 8 and Zoya was born July 9.
Zoya is an Amur, also known as a Siberian tiger, while Lola and her cubs are Sumatran tigers. Zoya was sent to Oklahoma City because the two tiger subspecies are similar.
