Two rare and critically endangered tiger cubs - born at a Bedfordshire zoo - have been exploring their new home.

The pair are five months old but have been hidden away up until now, under the watchful eye of their mother Minerva, while they learned to pounce, play, and sharpen their claws.

But now the Amur cubs have gone on display at Woburn Safari Park.

They are the first tigers to be born there in 23 years and it is thought there are just 520 Amur tigers - also known as Siberian tigers - in the wild.

Watch the video below to see the cubs - who have not been named yet - exploring their home.
