Rosamond Gifford Zoo Introduces Amur Tiger Cubs
Families can now visit two new residents of the Rosamond Gifford Zoo.
The Amur tiger cubs, whose names are Zuzaan and Soba, were born at the end of April.
“Since the birth of the cubs, our team of tiger care specialists have worked tirelessly to provide routine vaccinations and regular health check-ups to ensure their well-being,” said Ted Fox, executive director, in a press release. “We’ve all waited for this moment, and know the public is anxious to see them. Now we get to enjoy seeing the curious tiger cubs as they explore their exhibit – all while knowing that the care they received these past few months has set them up for a lifetime of health and success.”
