Sydney Arena - - SYDNEY NEWS -

Three rare Su­ma­tran tiger cubs have be­come a ma­jor at­trac­tion at Syd­ney’s Taronga Zoo.

The cubs were born on Jan­uary 17 to first-time mother Kar­tika.

The fe­male cubs are named Mawar (Rose in In­done­sian) ad Ten­gah Malam (Mid­night). The male’s name is Pe­m­anah, or Archer.

Su­ma­tran tigers are the most crit­i­cally en­dan­gered tiger sub­species and are un­der in­creas­ing pres­sure as their jun­gle habitat shrinks.
