White tiger cubs welcomed at Buenos Aires Zoo
This is the second set of cubs for the mother, Cleo, and father, Rhiano.
A zoo in Argentina has publicly debuted its latest brood of white tigers – adorable Bengal triplets with piercing blue eyes.
The two female cubs at Buenos Aires zoo have prominent black stripes and tawny white coats, while the male is almost pure white.
Zoo veterinarian Guillermo Weimeyer told reporters that the stunning litter was born three months ago.
This is the second set of cubs for the mother, Cleo, and father, Rhiano. Their first brood were transported to other zoos.
It is likely that Cleo and Rhiano’s new arrivals will also leave the zoo in the Argenitian capital.
Cleo’s labour lasted more than four hours. She will keep breastfeeding the cubs until they are five months old. But the incredible creatures have shown their appetites, and are already chowing down on a kilo of meat a day.
The animals have not yet been named – a task that will be left to children visiting the zoo.
