New Photos of Tiger Cubs at Play
The Milwaukee County Zoo’s two new Amur tiger cubs are some of the most fun and engaging animals around. They love to run, jump and play in their exhibit in the Zoo’s Florence Mila Borchert Big Cat Country. Check out the photo slide show below for examples. You might see the cubs trying to play with Mom Amba’s tail! Or you might spot them trying to outrun Mom when they venture too far into the exhibit for her liking. The cubs are just as cute when they take a break: “If they are nursing they will eventually just fall asleep in that position,” says zookeeper Val Werner. The cubs go on exhibit daily 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., but the best time to see them is between 10:30 and 11 a.m., say the keepers. Visit them often! They alternate playing with sleeping and resting behind the scenes.
