A mother dog is nursing two rare twin tiger cubs because the rightful Bengal tiger mother does not have enough milk.

The twin cubs were born at a safari park in northwest China. One is normal color the other is all white, which is rare.

The parents are 8-year-old Bengal tigers.

When the mother ended up not having enough milk for both cubs, park staff found a mother dog to nurse them.

On top of caring for these cubs, the momma dog is nursing her own newborn puppies.

The tiger cubs are growing well and are expected to be on public display by June 1.
