Five new tiger cubs made their first public appearance over the weekend at The Mirage hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

The 15-pound cubs are the latest addition to Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. These rare cubs are 6 weeks old and were on display in a special nursery created for them in the Secret Garden.

The exhibit houses lions, tigers, leopards and a black panther. The young tigers are two white females, two white striped females and a golden male tiger.

“While we no longer perform nightly,” Roy said in a statement, “our conservation efforts to save and care for these magnificent creatures are part of our daily life.”

I would love to go to Las Vegas just to see the new cub nursery! More pictures would be great. Love S&R's conservation efforts. How about the white lions?
