Amur Tiger Cubs Debut at Utah Zoo

Three Amur tiger cubs have gone on display with their mother at Utah’s Hogle Zoo. The cubs, all males, were born June 2nd. According to zoo staff, Hogle is the only zoo this year to have bred Amur tigers that were successfully raised by the mother. The cubs were born to female Basha, who was also born and raised at the Hogle Zoo. The zoo has also welcomed a baby giraffe, baby elephant, and snow leopards this year. See the full story, with pictures of the tiger cubs (that, according to my husband, don’t actually want a hug), at The Salt Lake Tribune.
