The Cleveland MetroParks Zoo is almost ready to share its three tiger cubs with the public.

In an update sent to the Wildlife Organization Facebook site On Wednesday, the zoo announced that the Rosebrough Tiger Passage would be the perfect home for the cubs by mid-April.

In a video, along with the update, the zoo shared tips on how to identify the similarities and differences between the cubs ahead of upcoming visits.

The boys are currently being cared for behind the scenes at the zoo’s Sarah Allison Steffee Center for Zoological Medicine. As soon as they grow a little taller and gain some strength, they can be seen by the public along with their parents.

You can visit the boys’ mother, Zoya, and father, Hector, in the zoo’s Rosebrough Tiger Passage. You are out and about all year round.

In February, the zoo held a fundraiser that made it possible for the people Vote on the names of the boys. The options include:

Although the voting is closed, the names have not yet been announced.

The male and female Amur tiger cubs were born at the zoo overnight between Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and the zoo announced their birth as early as January. They are the first baby Amur tigers to be born at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo in 20 years.

Two months after the cubs were born, the zoo welcomed a third tiger cub, a Malay tigress, from the Tulsa Zoo. The zoos hoped to “form a social group of two endangered subspecies of tigers”.

Amur tigers are endangered. It is estimated that fewer than 500 remain in the wild. Amur tigers live in the Far East of Russia and northeast China.
