Rare White Bengal Tigress Cub Debuts in Peru

There’s a very special, blue-eyed baby girl melting hearts at the Huachipa Zoological Park in Peru.

The endangered 2-month-old white Bengal tiger cub was born to Yunga and Clarita, who are from Argentina and Chile. The fluffy cub is the first of her kind to be born in captivity in Peru.

The little one drinks milk from a bottle and is starting to eat some meat too, reports WABC.

She made her media debut last week, and now that the public has gotten more of a chance to see her, a naming contest was held at the zoo on Saturday.

The winner, who will be announced on the zoo’s Facebook page on Sept. 2, will get to have their photo taken with the cub.
