Argentinas Buenos Aires Zoo is showing off its latest brood of white tigers. They are Bengal triplets. They have piercing blue eyes and a playful attitude.

Argentina is a country at the southern end of South America.

The two female cubs have prominent black stripes and tawny white coats. The male is nearly pure white.

Zoo veterinarian Guillermo Weimeyer says they were born three months ago. They are already eating more than two pounds of meat a day.

This is the second set of cubs for the mother, Cleo, and father, Rhiano. Their first brood was taken to other zoos. These cubs will likely leave as well.

A naming contest among children who visit the zoo has already begun.

    That is so CUTE! Their personalities sound just like kittens, but when they grow up they will be like their parents mature and very big. Their white coats with their black stripes and sometimes almost all white coats make them so amazing and extraordinary.

    Oh my, white tigers are endangered animals. I wish I could raise baby white tigers but I can't because after I take it to the wild it can't be back to the wild it will keep following me. There should be more generation for the white tigers. So they could not be endangered. I wish I could be in the zoo to do the naming contest I think I will win for sure.
