The cubs she delivered in 2008 could not sustain the harsh climates and die of pneumonia in 24 days of their birth. Then again in October 208 she gave birth to 3 male cubs and kept them in warm caves at 13 different locations.
From the years 2008 and 2013 she delivered 18 more cubs out of which 14 survived. In her 6th litter in the year 2015, she delivered more than 4 cubs.
Therefore she is definitely a superwoman.
