Zoosiana is proud to announce the arrival of two new baby tigers. These are the first photos of the zoos' new editions, six-week-old tigers Michael and Mitchell.

George Oldenburg, owner and director of Zoosiana, invites everyone in Acadiana and throughout the state to visit Zoosiana for a look at the new baby tigers named after his two youngest sons (Both graduates of Louisiana State University).

The zoo's newbies came all the way from the Big Apple.

George says, "it was quite an experience having two tigers in hotel rooms".

I flew to New York to get our two new baby tigers. It was quite an experience driving back to Louisiana with two tigers. It took 3 days. I had to stop and feed them every four hours, not to mention sneaking them into hotels! -George Oldenburg
