baby tiger photos

(photos kind permission of M. Larson)
I promised you last week that I would post photos of the new baby Sumatran tigers at the local zoo. These are all of the same baby (and Mom, too), but I can't tell if it's Bima (boy cub) or Mali (female cub). As you can tell, they are complete show stoppers, and to see them was a rare delight and privilege.

GAH! Too gorgeous for words.

I had the priviledge of petting and holding a very small tiger cub once; it was thrilling. What I remember most was the HUGE paws!

Very cute cub! Thanks for sharing such adorable pictures.

Maybe I missed it, but did you say whether they were conceived naturally? Do the tigers have a large area to live?
