A First Look At The Adorable Tiger Cubs That Were Just Born At Cleveland Metropark Zoo

By Secret Cleveland

These adorable Siberian tigers provide hope for the endangered species.

The Cleveland Metropark Zoo announced today, January 28th, the birth of two new Amur tiger cubs. This is the zoo’s first time welcoming Siberian tiger cubs into the family for over 20 years, and they’re so cute!


The tiger cubs weren’t in the best condition upon their birth because of their mom, Zoya’s, struggle as a first-time mom, but a special team of Animal Care experts at Sarah Allison Steffee Center for Zoological Medicine have been taking care of the cubs around the clock. The team has been bottle-feeding the cubs five times a day, and the tigers have been steadily gaining weight. In the last few weeks, the brother and sister have been making great developmental progress, and once they’re healthy enough, they will have a permanent home in the Zoo’s Rosebrough Tiger Passage. They’ll be joining their mom and dad, Hector, there.

Cleveland Metropark Zoo made the announcement on Twitter with the release of an adorable video of the cubs laying around and being fed! While no official names have been given to them yet, we’ll be keeping an eye on the zoo’s account for updates.
