Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Friday christened six tiger cubs, including three white tigers, now housed at the Arignar Anna Zoological park, Vandalur. Apart from the three white tiger cubs, new newly christened cubs include two Bengal tiger cubs born  in March at the park and a female cub that was rescued from the Sathyamangalam forest and now housed at the park.

According to a release from the zoo, Jayalalithaa named the two female white tiger cubs born to the white tiger, Anu, as Thaaraa and Meeraa, and the male cub as Bheemaa.

The two male cubs born to the Bengal tiger, Namrutha, were named Aadhithyaa and Karnaa while the rescued female cub was named Uthraa.

In March last year the chief minister personally visited the zoo in Vandalur and named seven newborn tiger cubs. She had also inspected several enclosures and amenities at the park.

Meanwhile keeping in mind the summer holiday rush expected at the zoo, which is usually closed on Tuesdays, officials have decided to  keep it open to visitors on all days of the week in May this year.
