This year, Taiyuan Zoo in Shanxi province prepared for a white tiger breeding peak. As the park's white tigers are raised with artificial feeding, tiger mothers have no nurturing experience.

Thus Taiyuan Zoo set up a "White Tiger Kindergarten". According to zookeeper Ren Xigui, now there are six tiger babies in the kindergarten.

Daily food is provided according to the cubs' ages.
