sfzoo enthusiasts and goober's blog followers will know that george and leanne's triplet boys moved to their new home at the akron zoo the first week in may. they moved there to live in the zoo's tiger valley exhibit. the zoo thankfully has provided a home where all three can continue to live together! ... i have been in contact with staff member machelle and she generously sought out and provided me with some great photos of them in their new home! i've had the photos for sometime, but have had to wait for the zoo to do their official press release before i could share them. got the go ahead this am, so here they are! she said, "they are doing great and are loving their new home!" ... they look happy and huge! these boys were the stockiest (chubby!) tigers i've ever seen! i'm glad they still have their big bellies and arms! hope you enjoy this update on our precious cublets! ... all photos courtesy of the akron zoo (thankx machelle!) ... the boys new names are Jae-Jae, Burung and Kami Sambol!  These are the names given to them by their SFZoo Keeper.  In SF their names were auctioned off, so they were referred to by those names.  Thankful that the Akron Zoo is using their given names.

  1. I miss the Cublets!!! but...I am glad to know they are in a beautiful habitat and get to live together. George and LeAnne did a great job on producing these gorgeous triplets!!! They have their Mom's looks and I hope they are developing that wonderful vocalization like their Dad!!! Short, chubby cublets...I miss you!!!
