    My sister and I took our annual trip to the Zoo for her birthday last weekend. The weather was cold and some of the hot weather animals were less than thrilled. To our surprise there were Tiger cubs!!! Even chewing on their huge meat bones, they're still SO adorable. You could tell the mother was tired of dealing with them, she kept trying to get away from them inside their enclosure.

    And afterward they clean themselves just like a housecat. Really adorable to watch.

    Great set! Tigers are a beautiful cat and you captured that well.
    Wonder if the juveniles get their own enclosure when they get so old, to give mom a break?

    Thanks everyone for looking, and for the comments. I did have a good vantage point, and was lucky to get it. It was a very busy day at the zoo.

    Not sure if the cubs will eventually get their own enclosure. One of the zoo employees said they're worth a lot of money and may go up for sale to other zoos, especially since they've been raised in captivity.
