Mexican zoo welcomes two white tiger cubs

A Mexican zoo welcomed two Bengal white tiger cubs. The baby tigers made their first public appearance since being born on May 16.

The Bengal white tiger is one of the world’s most endangered species.

Zookeepers said the birth of the tigers represented an important contribution to saving the animals from extinction.

The cubs’ parents are Sascha and Jazim. They were both rescued from circuses.

The whole tiger family now lives at San Jorge Zoo in Ciudad Juarez.

Both cubs are in good health, weighing about 4.4 – 6.6 pounds each.

They are currently both being nursed by their mother, who weighs about 200 kilos (440 pounds) and feeds solely on meat, according to zoo officials.

Children will be able to send in name suggestions for them soon.

White tigers are a genetic variation of the better-known orange Bengal tigers.

There are only about 2,500 of them left, wildlife experts say.

Poaching, deforestation, and overhunting have hit their numbers.
