A critically endangered Sumatran tiger has joined the Zoo Miami family, and you can help name her!

The cub was born on Jan. 5 to a 9-year-old tiger named Leeloo. The two had been in seclusion until earlier this month when caretakers examined the cub for the first time. Zoo Miami says that process is done so the cub and mother can bond, a critical need to ensure the health and safety of the baby. Zoo Miami says it won’t schedule a public debut for the cub until she’s a little older.
