Seeing the World For the First Time

Around two weeks old, Dash took his first steps, an activity that took a lot of energy for this tiger cub! Spending his days playing with his toys and observing the world, he started to become a bit more independent around 30 days old.

Baby Steps

When he was around 2 months old, Dash the tiger cub experienced the outdoors for the first time. The way he treads carefully over the snow-covered ground and instinctively sharpens his claws on a tree is an endearing sight.
