Camera “traps” hidden in eastern Thailand’s forests have captured a pretty spectacular sight: a population of elusive tigers, roaming to and fro.

The footage offers the first evidence of breeding tigers and cubs in eastern Thailand in more than 15 years. At least two populations of breeding Indochinese tigers still exist in the wild, researchers have confirmed in a new scientific survey.
