At 15.6 pounds, the Bengal tiger is the smaller of the two, but will eventually outweigh his playmate. He’s receiving bottle feedings every three hours. The Sumatran cub is 19.1 pounds and is eating his formula mixed with ground meat from a bowl.
Keepers at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park moved them to a larger room in the Ione and Paul Harter Animal Care Center.
The cubs can play with large climbing boxes, tackle stuffed toys, and slide on pillows and blankets. They also have a large, iron mesh window open to the outside.
There’s a viewing area where Safari Park guests can watch the cubs. The Animal Care Center in Nairobi Station is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
