WEST PALM BEACH (AP) - The Palm Beach County zoo says one of its rare Malayan tigers is expecting cubs.
The tiger, named Berapi, has been at the zoo since November. Officials say she could deliver up to four cubs in May.
The Malayan tiger is one of the smallest of the tiger species, and some estimates suggest there could be as few as 500 remaining in the wild. It is found in the Malayan peninsula in Thailand and Malaysia.
Poaching and habitat loss have significantly reduced the tiger population in Asia.
