Rare tiger cubs go on show at zoo


Four rare Sumatran tiger cubs make their public debut at Paignton Zoo in Devon.

The Sumatran cubs were born to mother Banda and father Tenang nine weeks ago.

Until now, they have been cared for by their mother out of view, only visible to the public on the internet from cameras set up in their den.
