Ankita, the white tigress, gave birth to two normal- coloured cubs in an enclosure of the Nandankanan Zoological Park here last night, the official said, adding that today happened to be Ankita's birthday.
The tigress delivered the first cub at 10.12 pm and the second one at 10.40 pm. The entire process was monitored through CCTV cameras, the official said.
Of the 26 tigers in the zoo, eight were white (a pigmentation variant of the Bengal tiger), the official said.
