LAS VEGAS – Four six-week-old tiger cubs came out to play at Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on Monday, Sept. 14. The siblings include three females and one male: Liberty, a pure white female; Maharani, a striped-white female; Hirah, a striped-golden female and Justice, a light golden male. The cubs were born at the Secret Garden on Aug. 5 to mother Indira and father Svengali and are the first to be introduced at The Mirage in five years.
The cubs have been dubbed the #SARMOTIcubs after the magicians’ SARMOTI Foundation, which is dedicated to the protection, conservation and preservation of endangered animals, with a particular focus on big cats: tigers, lions, cheetahs, panthers and leopards. For the first time, animal lovers around the world will be able to follow the cubs’ journey via social media. Using the Twitter and Instagram handle @SARMOTIcubs and on Facebook at Facebook.com/SARMOTIcubs, viewers can watch the siblings grow and learn inside their new home.
