Tigers usually give birth every two to two and a half years assuming the conditions are suitable for conception and the birth carries through. Due to the time it takes to raise a cub, there is generally a three to five year span between pregnancies. So roughly, tiger cubs would be born about once every six years for each female tiger.
Tigers have a litter of 2-3 cubs, but can be as big as 7! The pregnancy lasts about 103 days. Cubs are about 2.2 pounds when they are born. They stay with their mother until they are two years old. By this time, they have learned how to hunt, and are capable of living on their own. Mothers typically have another litter 18-24 months after the last birth.
