Inga hasn't eaten all day. Now, deep inside her den at the
Denver Zoo, she waits alone. No sounds disturb her. It's
dark. Something is about to happen.
At eight o'clock the next morning, zookeeper Liz Hooton tiptoes to a
tiny camera. She peeks into the den. Two cubs! By ten o'clock there are two more.
Inga has given birth to four healthy Siberian tigers--one of the most endangered animals on
earth. And Liz can already tell that Inga's going to be a very good mother.
