How can you define motherhood!  Some say it is tough for women to love an adopted kid.  Well, it all depends.  Here is a 6 year old Bengal Tiger who is caring for piglets as her own kids!  Now the question is – will the piglets grow up with a Tiger’s ferociousness or the TIger become lazy as a pig?  They have even clothed the piglets in striped coats… 🙂

And its not as if its just the tigers who can do that!  In the same zoo, a Pig is nursing tiger cubs as well as her own!  Seems like the zoo officials have a point to prove about mother-hood!!
