Mohan and Majestic are the latest additions to the Mirage Hotel.
Two 9-week-old, white-striped tiger cubs, have moved into the Mirage hotel in Las Vegas. At Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. Guests can see these rare cubs in a special nursery created for them.

Brother cubs Mohan and Majestic were born June 22 and weighed approximately 2 pounds each at birth. Their mother and father, part of Siegfried & Roy's breeding program, carry the rare recessive gene necessary to produce white offspring.

"Mohan and Majestic, our newest 'Ambassadors of Conservation,' play an important role in helping us achieve our goal to preserve and protect these rare and beautiful animals," Roy Horn said in a release. "These cubs add new, established genetic markers to our collaborative breeding efforts. We are pleased to share these magical creatures with the world."

Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage allows guests to encounter the white tigers, white lions, gold heterozygous tigers, leopards, panthers and a family of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins.

Daily nursery hours for the tiger cubs are 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (subject to change). For additional information and hours of operation, visit the website.

These are wild animals - to keep them in captivity for the entertainment of ill educated people and simply as a means of making money is sick, needless and disgusting.
