that were the first to be born in captivity in Hanoi July 08, 2003.
Their mother, an Indochinese tiger named Lam Nhi (which means "Child of
Forest") was confiscated from wildlife traffickers on July 19, 1998 in
Vietnam's central province of Thua Thien Hue when she less than two
years old. Lam Nhi gave birth to the cubs in the early morning of April
