Photographer's Note

This photo was taken at the Metro Toronto Zoo.

Three Sumatran tiger cubs, the first ones born in Canada, debuted to the public with their 4 year old Mom Brytne. The cubs, two of which are female and one male, explored their new quarters in the Sumatran Tiger Exhibit. Not only are the births a first for Canada and for the Toronto Zoo, they are vitally important to the North American and world population of Sumatran tigers. Despite protection, they are still hunted in their native Sumatra. In the wild, as few as 400 could remain and experts think the species could be extinct in ten years.

It was an unbelieveable sight watching the cubs playing together. Running, pouncing, jumping. Just like normal little children. It was truely an amazing experience.
