The Daily Treat: This Tiger Cub Is Just Like Your Teenager

Posted on

Now, that’s the face of a tiger cub who wants a later curfew.

From the looks of it, tiger kids are no different than your average teenager: Kirana, a female Sumatran tiger, is forced to look away as her newborn cub lets out a wail within their home at the Chester Zoo in England on Monday.

While we’re no expert on big cat mother-child relationships, we can’t help but flashback to our own door-slamming fights with Mom. The little one’s behavior is also in stark contrast to its easy arrival, captured here on video at the start of June.

It’s hard to speculate, but perhaps this newborn just wishes Kirana wasn’t such a tiger mom!
