Baby tigers have emerged for the first time at the Calgary Zoo and handlers are looking for help in naming the three balls of fur.
The cubs, now eight-weeks-old, were give their vaccinations by zoo staff Wednesday, which was the first time animal care staff had been in direct contact with the cubs.
It’s been determined there are two males and one female cub, each weighing between 8 to 8.9 kgs.
Staff say the mother tiger Katja has been excellent in caring for her cubs.
The female tiger will be named by a sponsor with the highest bid at the zoo’s annual fundraiser Tusks and Tails.
Officials say the cubs are beginning to venture out of the tiger barn.
