MIAMI, FLA. -OCTOBER 12, 2016 - The Zoological Wildlife Foundation (ZWF Miami) announces the arrival of its two newest tiger cubs, Harvey and Hailey, an adorable brother and sister pair.
"Harvey and Hailey are already playing and growing here at ZWF," said Mario Tabraue, President and Director of ZWF Miami. "The health and care of the animals at our zoo is our main concern, so we're happy the cubs are thriving" added Maria Tabraue, Vice President and director of the multi-acre private zoo located just south of Miami, FL.
The largest cat species, tigers reside in parts of Asia, Turkey and Russia. With approximately 3,500 of these big cats left in the wild, they are considered an endangered species.
Harvey and Hailey were born at ZWF on September 6, 2016 from Metridies, one of our most beautiful big cats. The young cubs' diet consists of mainly milk, but they will slowly be introduced to meat in the weeks to come.
The cubs are currently available for encounters with visitors of ZWF. Guests will have a chance to meet them for a limited time for $80 + tax for adults and $40 + tax for children. To ensure the wellbeing of the cubs, the duration of each encounter is limited to 5 minutes.
