They were born two months ago and now Banham Zoo is offering EDP readers the chance to name their latest, two female Amur tiger cubs.
To raise much needed money for animal charity, 21st Tiger Century, Banham Zoo have set up a charity ebay auction to help name their newest arrivals.
Mike Woolham, animal manager at the zoo, said: “We did it for our snow leopards - Rebecca, Margaash and Ziva - it helped to raise about £1,500 for the snow leopard trust,”
The winning bidders will also get the chance to receive a behind the scenes tour of the tiger facility for two people.
The chosen names for the cubs will be registered with the international stud book for Amur tigers, and so will be a permanent record.
The tiger cubs’ mother, five-year-old Sveta, was born in Lisbon Zoo while their father, Kuzma, four, was born in Banham.
