A viral photo of a family of tigers has been shared on social media recently.
The photo shows a tiger with her five cubs making their way down a road somewhere in Uttar Pradesh, a state in Northern India that borders Tibet and Nepal.
The photo was taken by Idian Forest Service officer Siddharth Singh, who leads tours of Dudhwa National Park in India. The photo, showing a tiger with her five cubs, went viral after it was shared on Twitter.
This is magical picture. Count the #cubs with #tigress. I know for a reason how few people will be elated after seeing this. Efforts are helping in making this species bounce back from verge of extinction. PC Siddharth Singh. Magical Terai. pic.twitter.com/ZIaMlUAxBj
