Rare cubs make their first public appearance

Three rare tiger cubs made their public debut at London Zoo last week as they were seen exploring the outdoor paddock.

The seven-week-old Sumatrans explored the main viewing area with mother Melati last Wednesday.

Tracey Lee, a keeper a London Zoo said: ““We were watching the cubs on the hidden cameras in their dens, when it looked like they were about to follow Melati outside – we all rushed to the exhibit and were just thrilled to catch them playing outside for the first time.

“We got a real glimpse of their different personalities, as two of the cubs confidently bounded outside while the other one hung back a little and needed a bit more encouragement from mum.”

The mother, Melati is not new to the press as just five months ago her first cub was found drowned in the enclosure after falling in the pool.

Melati’s triplets are being observed by keepers using remote camera technology. With less than 300 Sumatran tigers remaining in the wild, the births represent a significant achievement for the species global breeding programme.
