4 New Tiger Cubs On Display
POSTED: 2:51 pm MST December 27, 2007
LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz. — Four new baby tigers are now on display at the Wildlife World Zoo west of Phoenix.
The female tigers are the baby sisters of 1-year-old Nash and Raja and were born just a little more than a month ago.
The 10- to 12- pound baby tigers are drinking bottles of milk several times a day and live in a climate-controlled nursery room.
The tigers are named for even more players of the Phoenix Suns. They are Amare, D’Antoni, Marion and McCoy.
Nash and Raja now weigh 150 pounds, eat only meat and live in an outdoor habitat.
Wildlife World Zoo officials hope the new litter will help contribute to greater awareness of the imminent threat of extinction facing tigers and other large predators.
