London Video of the Week: London Zoo Welcomes Tiger Cubs

Three gorgeous Sumatran tiger cubs have been born at ZSL London Zoo’s Tiger Territory – and zookeepers have captured their first moments on hidden cameras in this amazing video.

The world’s rarest tigers were born to five-year-old Sumatran tigress Melati on Monday 3 February 2014 after a 106-day pregnancy.

With wild Sumatran tiger numbers estimated to be as low as 300 worldwide, the birth of these adorable cubs represents a huge achievement for ZSL London Zoo and for the global breeding programme of this endangered species.

Since Melati is now relaxing with her newborns, visitors to the zoo can still see six-year-old dad Jae Jae in the Tiger Territory.
