TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Busch Gardens is showing off three new members of the family.

The park released photos of three tiger cubs that were born March 31.

One shows a cub sleeping in the scale while being weighed.

The litter was made up of two males and one female. They each weigh between six and seven pounds, and are monitored around the clock.

The cubs are Malayan tigers, a critically endangered species, according to a media release. There are only around 500 left in the wild.

The cubs won't be on display for another month.
