3 white tiger cubs were born on 9th January to the tiger Nakula and the tigress Namrutha at the Vandalur Zoo in Chennai.
Out of 3 cubs, 2 tiger cubs had dense lines and were black in colour. The 3rd cub, a tigress resembled her mother and was white.
Now 3 months old, the 3 tiger cubs have been let out in a cage with mother Namrutha for the visitors to see. With these 3 cubs, the total strength of tigers in the zoo is now 28.
Some special activities have been initiated in the Chennai Arignar Anna Zoological Park to facilitate the visitors to the zoo to have a good time. A park-shop has been opened with pictures of animals and birds printed on some memento items such as key bunches, caps, baniyans, dolls, etc are sold. The number of items would be increased by a great margin shortly.
The 3 dimensional displays and underwater shows are hugely popular providing the visitors with great entertainment.
