London Zoo Welcomes 3 Super Cute Sumatran Tiger Cubs

This trio of tiny tigers are not only cute, but extremely endangered.

The London Zoo has a new trio of adorable jungle cats. Sumatran Tigress Melati gave birth last month to a litter of 3 tiger cubs. Only a few hundred Sumatran Tigers are believed to be living in the wild, but London Zoo is keeping these Sumatran cubs safe in a special cubbing den away from visitors.

Luckily, they have a camera set up (thanks surveillance state), so patrons can watch the cute little guys frolic. The cubs are still too young and fuzzy jellybean-looking to determine the gender, so they still have one more surprise in store. Until then, just enjoy the fact that even endangered super-predators start out like kittens.
