GUIYANG, CHINA (CNN) – Take a look at these adorable little guys. They are baby South China tigers!  According to C-C-T-V, the cubs were born in captivity two months ago. The news station reports the babies had to be separated from their parents just days after being born, because they were sick.

And officials at the Guiyang Forest Wildlife Zoo tell CCTV the cubs won’t be reunited with mom and dad until they are three years old.

C-C-T-V says these types of tigers are very rare in the wild in China, and less than 200 are in captivity.
