3 Rare Sumatrian Tiger Cubs Born at ZSL London Zoo!


Big news from ZSL London Zoo today. A Sumatrian tiger has given birth to 3 cubs!

This is amazing news as Sumatrian tigers are ridiculously rare now (experts think there’s only 300 left in the world!) and there’s a risk that they could become extinct. So the more Sumatrian tigers, the better (assuming they’re not in your living room).

There is one nickname flying around for one of the cubs though – Trouble. This is because it’s a bit bolder than the other two and keeps waking them up when they’re trying to nod off!
