  Name a South China tiger
Updated 02 July 2004, 15.52
Baby Tigers in China
Two Tigers from South China have made the trip from a zoo in Beijing to South Africa on the first leg of a journey to freedom.

The two big cats are going to get special attention from South African wildlife experts in readiness for their return to China in five years' time, when they'll be reintroduced to the wild.

At the moment there fewer than 100 South China tigers in the world.

Newsround fans have the chance to name a Tiger cub currently in China but waiting to make the move to South Africa.

He is four months old and will make the trip to South Africa with his sister.

And we gave you the chance to name the little critter!

The competition has now closed and the winner will be announced shortly...
