CISARUA, INDONESIA - FEBRUARY 26: Dema (male) the 26-day-old endangered Sumatran Tiger cub is fed by paramedic and an animal keeper Sri Wahyuningsih at the 'Taman Safari Indonesia' Animal Hospital, on February 26, 2007 in Cisarua, Bogor Regency, West Java, Indonesia. Orangutans, Irma and Nia have been rejected by their mothers while two Sumatran tiger-cubs (including Dema) also born in the hospital, have also been rejected by their mother Cicis and are being looked after by staff at the Animal Hospital.

Cute or not so cute? According to a Chinese news organization, a 7-year-old, female Siberian tiger recently gave birth to SEPTUPLETS in southwest China.

That’s 7 baby cubs, which is a rare happening among Tigers, the news agency reports.

The video below gives us an up close and personal look at these adorable critters hopping around, growling and making feisty faces. You can see a zookeeper providing milk to one of the babies. The video has ‘aww’ written all over it! Can we pet a few?!

But as much as we’re considering jumping into this pile of cuteness to offer some love, we’re not too sure the tiger cubs would feel the same way! It kind of looks like they’d be ready to bite at any time!

Maybe, we’ll stick to standing outside their cage and taking pictures! What do you think?
