One-month-old tiger cubs are seen at the Laohu Valley Reserve near Philippolis September 18, 2008. Endangered South China Tigress named Madonna gave birth to them as part of a tiger breeding project, where the cubs were born under natural conditions without human help. Madonna and the cubs' father TigerWoods were born in captivity in China, then brought to South Africa to learn to survive in the wild. Only about 76 South China Tigers exist in captivity and some believe that fewer than 30 survive in the wild, according to the organisation. [Agencies]
