Twin Siberian Tiger Cubs
In today’s Daily Cool Photo twin Siberian Tiger cubs sit side by side during a press presentation in the Leipzig Zoo in Germany. The two Siberian Tiger cubs were born on the 20th of July 2012. They are still nameless and have achieved a weight of about 9 kilograms. In case you did not know, Siberian Tigers are the world’s largest living felid (animals that belong to the cat family).
The Siberian Tiger is also known as the Amur tiger. It’s a tiger subspecies which mainly inhabits the Sikhote Alin mountain region with a small sub-population in South West Primorye province in the Russian Far East. It’s also an endangered species. It’s estimated that there are less than 400 Siberian Tigers left in the wild.
This photo of the Twin Siberian Tiger Cubs was taken by Jens Meyer for the Associated Press and it has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 25th of September 2012.
