Have you had a Birthday party and played games and got presents?
Well, at Taronga Zoo in Sydney, the three tigers cubs got the same thing! The keepers made toys and treats for them and I watched as Courtney, the carnivore keeper, placed the presents and a big box decorated like a Birthday cake, in their enclosure! Lots of fun to watch the cubs getting into their gifts!
I think they really liked them. I watched as Sakti, the oldest male cub, played with the box shaped like as cake! Kartika, the female cub, liked the present wrapped in tiger wrapping paper. Kembali, the youngest male cub, played with the presents and then fell asleep with his head in a cardboard box!! Maybe having a party is tiring and he needed a rest afterwards?!
I also showed the keepers some of the cards and Birthday wishes readers had sent me! They loved them and said to say ‘Thanks!’
