The Cameron Park Zoo has something new that may make your kids go wild. Their three new tiger cubs are finally out and about for all to see, even though they don't have names yet.
"Once a upon a time," began Andrew Villella. He made three new friends at the Cameron Park Zoo to read to.
Although it's more like play time instead of story time for these almost four month-old baby tiger cubs.
Cameron Park Zoo's Sumatran cubs finally made their first public debut Wednesday. Born on April 19th, the zoo let their mother, Maharani, bond with them for a few months before bringing them out to the exhibit area.
Yesterday zookeeper's let the cubs out on their own.
"They were scared. They were checking things out, being very cautious, did a lot of crying for mom. Completely different personality when we put them out today with mommy," said Cameron Zoo Director, Jim Fleshman.
Wednesday the two little girls and one boy are following mom's every move and showing off for the visitors.
Everyone from kids to adults couldn't keep their eyes off the tigers.
"You get to see a lot of moms with babies out here and there's some similarities. You know everybody's kinda showing everybody everything so it's all the newness and everybody seem really excited about it," said Fleshman.
"They really lay down and open their mouth a looking at your really cute," said Ainsley Legget.
Even Andrew didn't want to leave them, instead he just wanted to take them home. "I don't want to look at them. Because I want to pet them," he said.
These cubs are going to get as much time with mom their as they can because in about 12-18 months they're going to be shipped off to another zoo anywhere in the world.
Sumatran tigers are an endangered species and there are less than 600 of them in the wild today.
