The unnamed cub, who is currently nicknamed Big, was born in the early hours of May 1 to 14-year old mom, Mazy, alongside two other siblings.
Big now weighs 7.5 kg, and according to the Toronto Zoo, she is growing more "confident" and "adventurous."
Unfortunately, the cub's two siblings passed away due to different health conditions leaving only one surviving cub from the litter. The news of their deaths was especially saddening as Amur tigers are listed as an endangered species according to the Toronto Zoo.
The survivor Big is a part of the first litter of Amur tiger cubs born at the Toronto Zoo since 2007.
