Tiger cubs are born blind and only half of the cubs survive
The most heartbreaking aspect is that tiger cubs are born blind, with only a few surviving. The newborn cubs can't see anything and can only follow their mother's scent. Because they are born blind and unable to keep up, the majority of them die of hunger or cold. Some are even devoured by male Tigers to make the Tigress available for mating. That is completely insane!
