Tiny Tiger Cubs at 9 Days Old
June 03, 2010
Still too young to open their eyes, two tiny tiger cubs have made their photographic debut at Washington's Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium. Weighing only 2 lbs at birth on May 25th, these kittens will eventually grow to between 200 lbs - 300lbs. With the successful birth of these two rare Sumatran Tigers, the total number of these critically endangered cats in North American zoos climbs to 74. There are only between 400-500 remaining the wild.
