You're Gonna Flip Your Fucking Lid Over the San Diego Zoo's New Tiger Cubs

The three Sumatran tiger cubs born at the San Diego Zoo in January have finally been introduced to the public. Are you ready to meet some cute-ass cubbies and lose your fucking shit?

These adorable tiger babes—one boy and two girls—are named Nelson, Debbie, and Kathy. (How nice of the zoo to name them after my favorite Simpsons character and my dad’s former girlfriends!) They’re currently housed with their mom, Joanne, at the San Diego Zoo’s Safari Park on the Tiger Trail.

“They’ve been very active,” says zoo keeper Lori Hieber. “They didn’t hesitate at all to come out and start exploring. They’ve been running around and having a great time.”

Hieber adds, “Joanne is a wonderful mom. She’s taken excellent care of this litter and she’s been keeping a close eye on them as they explore all the little nooks and crannies of the exhibit, especially near the pool. She’s keeping a close eye on them and making sure they don’t get into trouble.”

Deb, Kath, and Nelson swimming in a pool? Please let that be the next video.
