A couple of new additions to the Montgomery Zoo pawz-itivily stole the show.
The zoo introduced two new baby white Bengal tigers today.
The cubs were born back on June 6th.
The unamed male and female will be on display at the zoo's nursery everyday at 10 AM 1 PM and 3 PM.
Doug Goode, Director, Montgomery Zoo, says "Hopefully we'll get started on a naming contest and that generates lots of interest. It's amazing the number of different names that we hear and many of the names are one of a kind."
Zoo officials say the cubs will be on display through the fall and will eventually be re-introduced to the adults.
