LIVE VIDEO: Sumatran Tiger Cubs And Mom At The Jacksonville Zoo

Dec 15, 2017

Jacksonville Zoo and Garden’s two new Sumatran tiger cubs are still too young to meet the public but that doesn’t mean the public can’t watch them.

The baby tigers were born November 20 and, zoo officials say, still require health exams and vaccinations.

So, until the time the cubs are old enough to go on exhibit, the zoo will be live streaming them in their nursery via YouTube.

The Sumatran tiger is the most endangered big cat species in the world.

There are currently fewer than 400 Sumatran tigers living in the wild.

The cubs’ birth at the Jacksonville Zoo is part of an effort by zoos around the world to increase their numbers.
