TUPELO- The Tupelo Buffalo Park has welcomed two new cuddly, yet ferocious baby tigers. 

Zoo residents Raja and Topaz are now the proud parents of two baby tiger cubs. The tigers reflect the differences in the parents. The father, Topaz is a seven year old black and white Bengal tiger and mother Raja is a seven year old orange and black Bengal tiger.

The cubs have similar coloring. One is black and white, the other is orange and black.

The cubs were born on May 11, 2017 and both babies as well as mother Raja are doing well.
