Why are tiger cubs born blind?
When the cubs are born, the female is alone; the father usually has nothing to do with the birth or rearing of his cubs.
The cubs are born with their eyes closed and are, therefore, blind.
They are totally dependent on their mother for their every need. Their eyes will open within between six and 12 days from birth.
Can you own a tiger cub
Currently, there's no federal U.S. ban on owning tigers, dangerous animals or exotic pets, according to the Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge.
Most individual states either ban all exotic pet ownership or require owners to have specific permits.
The cubs drink milk from the mother until they are about two months old.
In fact, nursing the cubs takes up about 70% of the mothers time in those first few months.
By six to eight weeks, they will begin to eat solid food.
By about eight weeks, they will leave the concealment of their den and their mother will begin teaching them how to hunt for their own prey.
Is it possible to pet a tiger?
Keeping tigers as pets is legally allowed in southeast Asian countries like Thailand and some other countries.
The number of these animals is surprisingly high there.
Much money is spent on several projects for conservation of tigers and lions in the country
