Every week since the birth of the Sumatran Tiger Cubs at Chester Zoo, I've been there documenting their progress. I'll be showcasing my best photographs of these extraordinary animals right here on 500px.

Originally there was 3 Tiger cubs; Ashme, Nila and Tila. Unfortunately Ashme died early January 2012 after a short illness.

The remaining 2 female tiger cubs are healthy and can be seen playing happily every day at Chester Zoo.

The Sumatran Tigers are now Critically Endangered, meaning that Chester Zoo is part of a group of conservation Zoo's that are basically a safety net for the species.

Managed to get a pretty impressive portrait photograph of Sumatran Tiger Cubs at Chester Zoo this last weekend.
She looked right into my eyes, probably thinking "I'll take the cubby one please!" :)

The little Tiger cub girls were actually play fighting, but this looks like she's giving her Sister a good back scratch.
