The zoo’s two Amur tiger cubs are celebrating their first birthday this month, but it will be another year before they reach their adult size.
The zoo said: “Their father, Pasha, weighs around 360lb and these two little ones weigh about half of that. They still have one more year of growing up to do before they’ll be full-grown!”
