Grrrrr! Introducing the Honolulu Zoo's new tiger cubs

It’s tough. But we’ll try to curb the profusion of cute here.

These are the first photos released of three tiger cubs born at the Honolulu Zoo last month.

The three-week-old Sumatran tiger cubs were born Sept. 15—the first tiger brood birthed at the Waikiki zoo in 27 years.

Honolulu Zoo officials say the cubs and their 9-year old mom Chrissie are doing well. (The cubs’ dad, Berani, wasn’t involved much in recent goings-on.) But don’t rush to the zoo’s tiger habitat to see the newborns just yet.
