Tiger cubs' half birthday!
We were delighted on the 11th June this year to welcome a pair of critically endangered Amur tiger cubs. Barney and Radzi, named after the Blue Peter presenters, were the first tiger cubs to be born at the zoo in over 17 years. Their parents, Zambar and Alyona, were only introduced to each other in late 2012, but have settled down well to family life.
Six months have flown by and the cubs have grown into independent, boisterous young tigers and one of their dedicated keepers, Andrew, was happy to update their fans on their progress.
