Hello, World! Sumatran Tiger Cubs Make Their Media Debut
Cubs at Zoo Atlanta will be seen by the general public after Labor Day
Loss of habitat on Indonesia's Sumatra Island — the only place on Earth those tigers are found — has decimated their populations. Fewer than 400 are believed to exist in the wild.
On Wednesday, Zoo Atlanta gave East Atlanta Patch and other media a sneak peek at the cubs, now eight weeks old, as Rebecca Snyder, the zoo's curator of mammals explained where they are in development and what their days are like.
