The press service of the Land of the Leopard National Park reported that Anton Ganzevich, an employee of the institution’s tourism department, managed to film two fearless teenage tiger cubs in the protected zone. They watched with curiosity the “operator” who was sitting in the car and did not show aggression.

Researchers at Land of the Leopard determined from the unique pattern of stripes on the tiger's skin that the predators had not been recorded before. In the near future, they will be entered into the national park database, they will be assigned unique identification numbers, which will be used in the future to be counted.

In size and body proportions, the animals correspond to adult tigers. However, their behavior and facial expression betray their young age. Most likely, these cubs are in the resettlement stage or on the verge of separation from their mother.

Scientists suggest that this was the first meeting between brave tiger cubs and humans. It is noteworthy that their mother was not with them at that moment. In appearance, the predators are between one and a half to two years old, and at this age they spend most of their time without their mother. It is possible that they were waiting for her return from the hunt.
