The latest residents of the tiger pen at Bangladesh National Zoo got their first taste of their adoring public on Monday

Including Durjoy and Abantika, there are a total of 11 tigers currently at Bangladesh National Zoo.

The cubs are currently with their mother, Beli. The father, Tagar, is being kept in a separate cage.
