Residents , Events October 9, 2012

  The Minnesota Zoo has just put out on display two new Amur tiger cubs that were transferred over to them this past summer.  Since it opened in 1978, the Minnesota Zoo has welcomed nearly 40 Amur tiger cubs. The Amur tiger, the largest of all cats and one of six remaining tiger subspecies, is a top predator of far eastern Asia. Amur tigers can grow to more than 650 pounds and measure nearly 11 feet in length, according to the National Geographic.
