WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Three Malayan tiger cubs will be making their public debut during Safari Nights at the Palm Beach Zoo on Friday, July 29 at 5:30 p.m.
But for those that can't wait until then, a live "tiger cam" has been set up in the facility to give the public an advanced look at the cubs.
Born less than three months ago, the cubs are only the second litter born in any zoo in the United States in 2011. There are estimated to be fewer than 500 Malayan tigers left in the wild.
According to a zoo officials, Berapi, the cubs’ mother, joined Rimba, their father and a long-time resident of the zoo, in November.
The zoo is fundraising to construct a new tiger exhibit large enough for the family of five to live in for the next two to three years while the cubs grow up.
