So where have these cute cubs been hiding? Animal Care and Health teams at the Minnesota Zoo have been "closely-monitoring" the cubs and new mom Sundari (AKA Dari for short).

Three words. Two animals. A whole lot of cuteness. We're soo excited to share that two Amur tiger cubs were born on May 23rd! Both cubs – one male and one female – have been successfully bonding in a behind-the-scenes habitat with their mother.

Mom and cubs are all doing well! They will continue to be behind the scenes for a little while longer as they bond and thrive as a young family.

This is truly a special time for staff at the Minnesota Zoo and visitors! They already can't wait to meet the newest zoo residents:

Oh my goodness, YAY!!! I love them!

They are so adorable! Congrats to all! Can't wait to see them!

Cuteness overload! They are adorable!

Fantastic news! Good work tiger team!

Congratulations to the Minnesota Zoo!
