Triplet Tiger cubs make debut

THEY say good things come in threes, and this beautiful Sumatran Tiger cub and its two brothers are living proof. Just eight weeks old and yet to be named, the tiger triplets enjoyed their first day out in the sun at Taronga Zoo today, frolicking in their enclosure while mum Jumilah supervised from a distance. But the rare exercise seemed to tire out the youngsters quickly, who curled up next to mum and fell asleep shortly after playtime.

Taronga Park Zoo's new triplet Sumatran Tiger Cubs have made their much awaited debut in the public viewing enclosure.


Currently named Cub 1, Cub 2 and Cub 3 they will be subject of a national "Naming Competition"

The cubs were bred through a 'selective breeding program' with Jumilah being matched with a mate in a German zoo.

Got to be the cutest looking animal around! Good to hear that there is a program to keep these guys on the planet for a bit longer.
