ZSL London Zoo - Meet our new arrival 🐯



A cub for Christmas 
We're so excited to share the first footage of an adorable Christmas arrival at London Zoo - a Critically Endangered Sumatran tiger cub, born at 02:19 on Sunday 12 December.  

Take a look at the remarkable footage showing mum Gaysha cleaning and feeding the newborn just hours after birth - before the determined youngster takes its first wobbly steps on the soft straw of their cosy behind-the-scenes den.  

While Gaysha has ventured outdoors alone to stretch her legs, the two-week-old cub is likely to remain tucked away in the warm cubbing den until it's first vaccinations - when vets will also determine the cub's sex. 

We'll keep you up to date with all the latest news about our adorable cub, so look out for more updates soon!
