The Mirage today welcomed its newest addition to Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat - six-week-old white, white-striped and golden tiger cubs. The public will get its first chance to see these rare and adorable cubs in a special nursery created for them in the Secret Garden Friday, June 13, 2008, which happens to be Siegfried's 69th birthday.
"We are delighted to welcome these cubs to their new home at the Secret Garden," said Scott Sibella, President of The Mirage. "They make a wonderful addition to Siegfried & Roy's animal family."
Roy said, "While we no longer perform nightly, our conservation efforts to save and care for these magnificent creatures are part of our daily life. These new cubs are a gift from the universe and it brings us great joy to share them with the world."
"I am honored that our tigers will go on exhibit for my birthday and just in time for Father's Day weekend," said Siegfried.
Plans to involve Clark County School District students in the naming of a cub will be announced in the form of a contest at a later date.
