SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A tiger cub who made headlines after being rescued at the U.S./Mexico border has been adjusting well to his new home - and new brother.
The 3-month-old rescued Bengal tiger cub was brought to San Diego Zoo Safari Park on Aug. 23, after being confiscated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the U.S./Mexico port of entry near San Diego.
For the Bengal cub, fans can vote between Shuroo (Beginning), Moke (Chance), Bachaaya (Rescued), Indra (Hindu Warrior God of the Sky and Rain), Sahasi (Bravew), and Mansasi (Carnivore). The Bengal cub's names were selected to help shed light on wildlife trafficking.
For the Sumatran cub, fans can select from Kuat (Strong), Kilau (Sparkle), Pemburu (Hunter), Topan (Hurricane), Rakan (Friend), and Masalah (Trouble).
