At the beginning of the video, you can see the mother Tiger laying on her side while Giles explains the situation. That’s when you can see the embryonic sac begin to come out, the team of caretakers is filled with excitement, but something is wrong.

When the first cub comes out he’s not breathing, you can see the panic begin to set in, but the Tiger knows exactly what to do.

She vigorously licks her cub, trying to get him to breathe. Usually, a baby tiger will start breathing quickly after feeling the sensation of their mothers tongue, but this baby is gasping for air.
