These are the tentative early steps of four young tigers in China.

The quartet of Siberian tiger cubs will soon be ready to meet visitors at Yunnan Wildlife Park in the country’s southwest province of Yunnan.

The Siberian tiger is listed as an endangered species with only around five hundred still remaining in the wild.

Their breeder Zhou Huazeng said the four had not yet been named, so identification is made via the cubs’ tails.

“You see the tail. This stripe is different from this stripe. The stripe on this tail is very fine and thin, whereas this one is larger. Take a look. It is quite easy to tell them apart from their tails,” Zhou added.
