PHOTOS: Newborn Tiger Cubs at Animal Kingdom Revealed to be Girl and Boy
This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Sohni, a Sumatran Tiger at Disney’s Animal Kingdom recently gave birth to two cubs, and we now get to see these brother and sister cubs with their eyes open.

Both cubs have weighed in at about 12 pounds each, and have begun to start walking on their own. The cubs will have to remain backstage for a few more months, but until then, we can gawk over these adorable photos.

Sumatran tigers are extremely endangered, with fewer than 500 left in existence due to poaching, habitat loss, and illegal wildlife trade.

Disney is aiding in the conservation of endangered species, and you can help by partaking in Disney’s Connect to Protect interactive missions throughout Pandora – The World of Avatar. When guests enter Pandora, they will receive a notification on their smartphone allowing them to partake in this activity. Working with artificial intelligence scientists, guests can vote and unlock monetary contributions on behalf of Disney. $100,000 has already been donated by Disney towards helping protect elephants in Kenya, but there are also ways guests can help protect gorillas, migratory birds, butterflies and other species.

When the newborn tiger cubs are out for the public to see on Maharajah Jungle Trek we’ll be sure to share another update.
