This beautiful female tiger was photographed at Chester zoo. Beside her and quite well hidden lie her two sleeping cubs. They were born in October of last year, making them 5 months old now and they are just beginning to get confident and mischievious and are absolutely adorable. She had them hidden fairly high up on a platform with a cover of laurel trees and was watching carefully whilst they slept.
