Small tigers and dogs - level 3

Small tigers and dogs - level 3

14-02-2014 15:00

This could possibly be the cutest thing you’ve seen all year.

These Siberian tiger cubs, twin girls Mao Mao and Ying Ying and their older brother Shua Shuai, are being raised by a step dog mum after their own tiger mum resisted feeding them.

The cubs are having a great time with their new step family, and have been playing loads with their step brothers and sisters.

And the tiger cubs love a game of ball and getting their claws into the odd human.

It’s not hard to see why they’ve become stars at the Hangzhou Safari Park in east China’s Zhejiang Province. We’d all love a cuddle too!

But it won’t be all fun and games forever, the cubs are expected to be reunited with their parents soon.

Difficult words: cub (baby), claw (animal’s big nail), odd (random), cuddle (touching nicely and lovingly).
