Three Amur tiger cubs born in Crimea’s Taigan Safari Park in March are getting on just fine and are “strong and healthy,” the park’s management told RT’s Ruptly video agency. In new video footage, the three newborns can be seen snoozing and playing with their parents.

Amur tigers are a rare tiger subspecies, once found throughout Russia’s Far East, northern China and the Korean peninsula. By the 1940s, the breed was driven to the brink of extinction as a result of hunting. Russia became the first country in the world to grant the Amur tiger full protection.
