Three Malayan tiger cubs and their mother pounced and played with carved pumpkins in their exhibit today at the San Diego Zoo. The six-month-old cubs bounded toward the orange orbs, sniffing at them before knocking the tops off to get at the ground meat inside. Menderu, a male cub, carried the top of one pumpkin around by the stem, playing keep-away with his sisters, Seri and Jin.

High Tech High interns interviewed Nicole Johnston, a zookeeper for the Malayan tigers at the San Diego Zoo. Nicole talks about what the tiger cubs do on the exhibit and how they interact with each other and their mom. The female cub's names are Seri and Jin. The male cub's name is Menduru. Each cub has unique characteristics that can be distinguished. Seeing the cubs play and eat with each other was very fun!

After a rough start, a hand raised African lion cub is now spending his mornings pouncing and running with others of his kind at the San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park. Four-month-old Nyack is now living at Lion Camp after spending the first few months of his life at the Wild Animal Park's nursery where he has been nursed to health. The cub is being introduced to other cubs at Lion Camp. Although his new companions are being raised by their mothers, the cubs spend the mornings away from their parents to help socialize Nyack.

It was raining lions at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park Thursday. Two lionesses and seven cubs tumbled, pounced and explored their surroundings as they made their public debut on a cloud-filled morning at Lion Camp.
Four cubs were born to 4-year-old Oshana on Nov. 2 followed by three cubs on Nov. 6 to her 4-year-old sister Mina. A month later the two groups were introduced and instantly became one big happy pride.
"The cubs behaved as if they had always been one pride and extremely vigorous play began immediately," said Marcia Redding, San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park senior keeper. "Mina and Oshana greeted each other with friendly vocalizations and set off to check out each other's cubs and dens."
The pride will be seen in the mornings daily and are identified by shave markings on their bodies. Keepers hope to introduce the father of the cubs, Izu, into the group once the cubs have acclimated to savannah habitat.
For more information on the cubs' progress visit the www.wildanimalpark.org to read blogs posted by Lion Camp keepers and to read about other Park happenings.

Two jaguar siblings at the San Diego Zoo turned one today and received a birthday party complete with cake, banners and presents. One-year-old brother, Tikal, and his sister, Maderas, came charging out of their bedrooms with mother, Nindiri, and immediately knocked over their birthday cake and tore open empty boxes wrapped as presents.
Unfortunately for his sister, Tikal wouldn't share any of the special birthday cake made of blood, water, and beef hearts with her. He even tried to keep his mother away, but mom persisted and was able to snack on the frozen treat with her son. http://www.sandiegozoo.org
