In celebration of the cute cubs’ first birthday, the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo has created a special gift registry for the big cats, featuring items like knucklebones and “meatcicles,” and even Calvin Klein cologne.

The items, ranging in price from $10 to $100, will be used as part of an enrichment program “designed to exercise the muscles and minds of the animals.”

The rare crew at Tiger Mountain includes two sets of triplets, three Amur tigers and three Malayan tigers, all born last spring. These playful cats are the first litter of Malayan cubs ever exhibited at the Bronx Zoo.
