KIEN GIANG (Biz Hub)– Four healthy Bengal tiger cubs were born in Vinpearl Safari Phu Quoc, the first wildlife zoo on Phu Quoc Island in the southern province of Kien Giang, recently.

After more than 100 days of pregnancy, two female Bengal tigers gave birth to two cubs each. The first-ever cubs named Phu, Quoc, Hieu and Thao are now more than a month old and are being taken care of by doctors and staff of the safari.

The Asian Bengal tiger is one of the numerous species in the world with less than 2,500 tigers and showing a decreasing trend since 2011.

Apart from Bengal tigers, there were other new born cubs seen on the island safari this time. They included two gazelles, one Bongo, four African serval, and one grey kangaroo.
