SHENYANG, China (NBC/CCTV VIA APTN) — Four Siberian tiger cubs were born at a zoo in Northeast China.

Siberian tiger Amur gave birth Saturday to the quadruplets at a Chinese tiger zoo after a 108-day pregnancy.

According to a tiger breeder, Siberian tigers usually give birth to two- to five cubs with a low survival rate.

However, according to zoo staff all four tiger cubs are said to be in good health.

Siberian tigers mainly live in eastern Russia, Northeast China and northern parts of the Korean Peninsula.

Less than 500 Siberian tigers are believed to be living in the wild.
