LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Two Sumatran tiger cubs are enjoying life at the Chester Zoo in England.

Twins Alif and Raya were born in January.

The cubs were a little shy at first but have slowly emerged from their den.

They are a part of a conservation breeding program that helps endangered animals.

According to the Zoo, there are only 350 Sumatran tiger cubs left in the wilds of Indonesia.

Experts say the dwindling numbers are due to habitat loss and poaching.
