National Zoo’s tiger cubs now playing with the big cats

Posted: Updated:

Some of the National Zoo's youngest cats are making their public debut.

Sukacita and Bandar are Sumatran tiger cubs.  They were born on August 5th. The cubs had to undergo veterinary exams and pass swim tests earlier this month.  During the swim test, the cubs were able to keep their heads above water and climb to dry land. 

After all that, they're ready to explore the yard with their mother, 4-yr.-old Damai.
