1010 WINS– These cuddly kitties just want to play with their stuffed animal pals!
The latest rescue cubs to call the San Diego home each weighs less than 20 pounds — but can grow to be over 200 pounds. One cub, a Sumatran tiger, was born on July 11th at the National Zoo in Washington D.C. but was rejected by his mother shortly after.
The other, a Bengal tiger, was confiscated at the U.S./Mexico border on August 23rd.
The pair just met on September 11th, and both are now thriving while being cared for by loving staffers at the San Diego Zoo. Since they continue growing, they’ve been moved to a bigger cage with lots more to explore.
Could these cubs be any cuter?
Keep up with these adorable kids by following along on Facebook and if you’re in San Diego you can visit them from 9AM to 5PM daily at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park’s Ione and Paul Harter Animal Care Center in Nairobi Village.
