Baby white tigers - level 3

Baby white tigers - level 3

06-05-2013 14:00

The newest stars at Tobu Zoo in Tokyo are now on show, four white tiger cubs born only a month and a half ago. At this stage, the cubs are only 30 to 40 centimetres long and weighing at about 5 kilograms.

They've been a hit with visitors who've queued up to see them. It's a big four-day weekend coming up and thousands of people are expected to turn up.

There are fewer than 200 hundred of the species left in the wild so the zoo is eager to show them off to the public. Although at times all the attention can seem to get a little too much for them.

Interesting words: cub (tiger baby), queue up (form a queue), turn up (arrive), species (kind of animal), eager (enthusiastic), at times (sometimes).
