Photos of tiger cubs at Melbourne Zoo

Today I'd like to share with you a few photos of the tigers cubs that have been bred successfully at Melbourne Zoo. The sumatran tiger couple have had two litters of cubs so far. The first time our female Binjai had three cubs but sadly one of the cubs had drowned so only two survived. The next time she had four cubs and all of them have been growing up happy and healthy. They will be sent off to other zoos when they are about two years of age to continue with the breeding program. This will ensure they will not go extinct in captivity but of course we hope they do not become extint in the wild either.
So I hope you enjoy the photos of these cuties :)

  1. When they are not hunting you,
    they are actually marvelous creatures,
    strong, wild and scary indeed..
    but, when they're not doing anything, there is that look in them that drives you to wish to be near them. Animals are fascinating!
