There were three Sumatran Tiger cubs born about three months ago at the National Zoo, and the public got their first glimpse of them this morning. There’s more information, including a tiger cub cam, on the Great Cats section of the zoo’s website.
Now, Sumatran Tigers are an endangered species, and most wild animal species live longer (and many would also add live fuller lives) in the wild than in captivity. And the National Zoo has had a lot of trouble taking proper care of their animals over the past several years. But whatever your feelings on zoos, you have to admit these tiger cubs are damn cute.
