Tiger cubs stars of Japanese safari park – video
Four tiger cubs born on 3 June are already the stars of Japan’s Fuji safari park, west of Tokyo. The cubs delight visitors, who are able to play with the newborn felines after feeding them formula under the supervision of park caretakers. A newborn black jaguar is also preparing for its debut at the park, along with new lion cubs.
You can tell from their scarred little noses that they are probably kept in tiny holding cells. Big cats will constantly pace when confined to quarters that are too small. The missing nose hair is a good indicator of an early life where they had very little space.
