Five new white tiger cubs born in an Austrian Zoo and thought to be the first litter of five white tiger cubs in all of Europe, have made their first public appearance today in the media. Their names? Lila, Lulu, Lela, Lali, and Obama. Interesting choice.
According to owner of the Kernof Zoo, Herbert Eder, it's incredibly rare for five white tiger cubs to be born at once. Most zookeepers only bank on four at a time. Eder told the press in an interview:
"It's like, I am the father! Because it was so great we couldn't believe it (at) first. We had four cubs and two hours later the fifth was coming. And then we were really happy because all cubs were moving, were running to their mother, drank milk in the first five hours."
Congrats, Eder, on your new babies.
