Meet Castro Jr., the Sacramento Zoo's latest (and, dare we say, cutest) Sumatran tiger addition, who was born March 3.
"The birth of any Sumatran tiger is a great contribution to this critically endangered species," said Mary Healy, zoo director. "We are especially excited for this birth because it is the first time we have had a camera in the den, allowing zookeepers and veterinarians to keep a close eye on [mother] Bahagia and her cub."
Fewer than 500 Sumatran tigers are thought to live in the wild, and about 200 live in zoos around the world.
