London Zoo released a video on Thursday of its newest arrivals – two rare Sumatran tiger cubs.
The first cub arrived at 9:19 am, followed by the second at 10:02am on Monday June 27, 2016. After a thorough clean from mum Melati the youngsters nestled in for their first feed.
The Zoological Society of London (ZSL) is a charity devoted to the worldwide conservation of animals and their habitats — established 1826.
Sumatran tiger numbers are estimated to be as low as 300 individuals, there the birth cubs represent a huge achievement not just for ZSL London Zoo, but for the entire world interested in breeding for critically endangered species.
Zookeepers have released incredible footage of the birth of two critically endangered Sumatran tigers, captured on a hidden Cub Cam at ZSL London Zoo.
