Our Amur tiger cubs made a brief public appearance last week, meeting local reporters and a few lucky zoo visitors who happened to be passing by. The boy and the girl are growing quickly, but are still a little too young and wobbly to be out in their yard full-time. Our third cub is receiving medical care for a congenital abscess.
The cubs’ mother, Toma, is doing a great job rearing the babies. This is her third litter, and she’s a been a very attentive and doting mom.
