A South China tiger cub1 was born in a wild animal park in southwest China's Guizhou Province, the first cub of the endangered species successfully bred in Guizhou in four years.
 
一只华南虎幼仔在贵州省某野生动物园出生,这是四年来贵州出生的第一只华南虎幼仔。
 
 
The female cub, weighing 750 grams, was delivered by her mother Meng Meng at Guizhou Forest Wildlife Zoo Saturday. The cub is in good health.
 
In 2009, the zoo introduced four South China tigers from Shanghai and two cubs2 were born in 2014, one of which is the newborn's father.
 
Indigenous3 to China, South China tigers used to live across the country. However, the wild population has sharply shrunk since the 1950s due to loss of habitat, and finally disappeared. More than 100 tigers are alive and dwell in zoos or breeding bases.
 
Guizhou, where the last wild South China tiger disappeared, set up the country's first breeding base for the species in the 1960s, with 12 local wild tigers, according to Ran Jingcheng with the provincial4 wildlife administration.
 
From 1963 to 1970, about 60 cubs were born at the base, with more than 30 surviving. In 2005, Lin Lin, the last South China tiger at the breeding base died aged5 30.
