In-Sync Exotics Welcomes Another White Tiger Sanctuary welcomes baby white tiger named Kylo Ren
A white tiger cub named Kylo Ren has been born at In-Sync Exotics. His parents, Assad and Zahra, were rescued on Jan. 18. A tiger's gestation period is between 93 and 112 days, so Zahra was pregnant at time of rescue. Kylo Ren was born on March 6, 47 days after his parents were rescued.
After Kylo's birth, both mother and baby were closely monitored for signs of normal and healthy behavior. While Zahra did clean Kylo off and did not exhibit aggression towards the cub, she did not keep him close for protection or warmth, did not nurse him, nor did she respond to his cries. After six hours, and at the advice of a USDA veterinarian who specializes in newborn animals, In-Sync Exotics founder, Vicky Keahey, stepped in to help. Little Kylo Ren is being given specialized around the clock care by Vicky Keahey and veterinarian Dr. Emily Wilson and is doing well.
As a legitimate sanctuary, In-Sync Exotics does not breed, nor do we condone the practice of private breeding. As such, spay and neuter surgeries are performed on new rescues. Assad was neutered while in quarantine, however it was necessary to wait to spay Zahra until it was known for sure if she was pregnant. She will be spayed soon.
