Tiger Cubs' First Well-Check
The trio of Amur tiger cubs passed their well-check and appear to be healthy. The staff work quickly and quietly to assess the cats and identify their individual sex. There are two girls and one boy! In the video, you’ll see the staff rubbing the den’s bedding on their hands. This is to help mask their scent from the cubs and mom, Irisa. Also, the staff shave the cubs in different spots, as this helps them easily identify the cubs on the den’s remote camera. The cubs are off-view as they continue to grow.
