NEWSLINK: Tiger stardom in Yorkshire
As wild creatures go, these cute tiger cubs knock the stripes off all rivals. Not only are they members of the most exclusive big cat clan in the world, they are fast becoming global superstars.
The three cubs are Amur tigers, super rare big cats from the Siberian wilderness and were born at the award-winning Yorkshire Wildlife Park earlier this spring.
Their public debut became an internet sensation when staff at the park were filmed measuring the tiny cubs.
