Tiger Cubs open Their Eyes for the First Time
April 24, 2011
Two tiny Malayan Tiger cubs opened their eyes last weekend at the San Diego Zoo. Born to mom, Mek Degong, the two week old cubs represent hope for a species that has been reduced to about 500 individuals from 3,000 in the 1800s. After this check-up, the cubs were returned to the birthing den, a cozy room filled with straw, where they will stay and nurse for the next two months.
