Zoo officials today announced female Amur tiger cub, Helina, made her grand debut at the Indianapolis Zoo! She was very curious about her new surroundings and made sure to climb, sniff and explore her new habitat, thrilling guests who were on hand to see her debut.
Yesterday, the Zoo prepped the public for the debut with this announcement on social media:
“We have some grrr-reat news to share! The tiger cubs are making their public debut this week! 🐯 This Friday at 9:30am, you could have the purr-fect opportunity to see our adorable cubs venture out into their new habitat!
We do want to remind our guests that this will be their first day out, so it will be an adjusting period for them. A brand-new environment, a lot of people taking photos of them – it’s a lot to take in on the first day. So, it’s important to know that not everyone may have the opportunity to see them right away.
Plus, they are cats – and just like a house cat, they like to do things their way and on their own schedule (cat parents out there understand). They may be inside taking a cat nap or being indecisive about being inside cats or outside cats - because cats will be cats. ❤️”
