LAS VEGAS — The newest additions to the Mirage are two 7-week-old white-striped tiger cubs.

The males cubs, Mohan and Majestic, were born June 22. Their mother and father are part of Siegfried & Roy’s breeding program for the rare tigers.

“Mohan and Majestic, our newest ‘Ambassadors of Conservation,’ play an important role in helping us achieve our goal to preserve and protect these rare and beautiful animals,” Roy said.

The tigers can be seen at Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden between 11 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. every day.
