According to the Toledo Blade, the attraction said two baby Amur tigers – born to first-time mom Talya, 9, and father Titan, 4 – arrived March 19. Officials have not yet named the cubs, one male and one female, the newspaper reported.
Late Monday, the zoo took to Facebook to share a photo of the 2 baby Amur tigers.
“I am very excited to announce that the Toledo Zoo has two beautiful new Amur tiger cubs,” Jeff Sailer, the zoo’s president and CEO, said in a statement. “I’m so proud of the zoo’s animal caretakers and veterinary staff for their hard work in making the birth of these two cubs possible. I cannot wait for all of you in our community to get the chance to see these wonderful new tiger cubs. There are so few tigers left in the world that the birth of these cubs is a great benefit to the population of these endangered species.”
