- Squee April 17
The world just got a whole lot cuter, as a trio of rare white Bengal tiger cubs made their public debut at the Buenos Aires Zoo on Wednesday.
The triplets — two females and one male, born three months ago — are the second set of cubs born to Cleo and Rhiano. They are already each eating a kilogram of meat a day. The females have black stripes and tawny white coats, while the male is almost pure white. All three have striking blue eyes. They're still waiting on identities, though; a naming contest is underway, with children who visit the zoo submitting suggestions. --Catherine Garcia
