Friday Afternoon Fun: Sumatran Tigers Pass Their Swim Test at the National Zoo

Here’s some light Friday afternoon fun and inspiration. Two Sumatran tiger cubs (yeah, the very same species that is threatened by palm oil-driven rainforest destruction) at the Smithsonian National Zoo took their formal “swim test” this week, or order to make sure that they could handle the pool in their new home.

The results of the test are in…and are adorable. 

First, some pics, courtesy of the National Zoo.

Yep, these are the adorable beasts that Forest Heroes are fighting to save.
