Your morning adorable: Amur tiger cub is ready for its closeup in German zoo
At the Wuppertal Zoo in Wuppertal, Germany, a two-week-old Amur tiger cub named Schuna is getting a great deal of attention from keepers.
Schuna's mother, Mymosa, rejected the cub, so zoo veterinarian Arne Lawrenz and other staff members have taken over where she left off, bottle-feeding Schuna and giving round-the-clock care.
Amur tigers, also called Siberian tigers, are endangered, with their wild population believed to number only in the hundreds. Zoos around the world participate in a breeding program designed to help save the species, so babies like Schuna are seen as very important new additions.
Amur tigers are the largest of the remaining tiger subspecies; adults typically weigh between 300 and 600 pounds.
