Artist's Description

Amur Tiger Cub, Columbus Zoo

If you live in the Columbus area (or, really, within a good hour or two’s radius of it), you may have heard about the zoo’s new tiger cubs. Amur tigers Mara and Foli had two boys about a year ago and then this spring had another bundle: four (four!) girls.

They’re currently very tiny and fluffy. Like most cats, they spend the majority of their time sleeping (under low bushes so they can sometimes be very difficult to spot), but occasionally they wake up for a good romp.

This is one of the girls. A zoo goer had the audacity of…existing, really, is all I think he did. She responded by showing him that, while her teeth are still tiny, they are indeed very sharp.

If you want to see the cubs yourself they are supposed to be on exhibit Tuesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 9 until about 2. Realize that this is the zoo’s schedule.. sometimes Mara doesn’t let the cubs out and, as mentioned above, sometimes they’re out but not visible.
