As if it were even possible, it looks like we're going to get more cuteness at Disney's Animal Kingdom thanks to a special pregnancy at the park.
Sohni, one of two Sumatran tigers in the park's care, is pregnant with cubs, according to the Disney Parks Blog. The birth is expected to happen sometime this month.
There are less than 500 Sumatran tigers left in the wild and the Disney Conservation Fund is working with partners like the Wildlife Conservation Society to help reduce the ongoing decline of gorgeous animals like Sohni.
Specifically, the Society's Reverse the Decline initiative aims to increase the wild population of Sumatran tigers by 25 percent in the next decades. To date, DCF has provided nearly $2.5 million to protect tigers and their habitats.
Sohni and her mate Malosi (a pair who can be seen along the Maharajah Jungle Trek in Animal Kingdom) were chosen to breed through the Species Survival Plan. The program, which is overseen by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, ensures responsible breeding of critically endangered species.
Such happy news for Disney and animal lovers alike! Disney hasn't said how many cubs will be born, but we suspect a grand announcement from the mouse house when the big day arrives.
