Two endangered Amur tiger cubs are now on display at the Minnesota Zoo, the Star Tribune reports. A zoo spokesperson says the pair are nearly off bottles and are growing stronger.

One of the cubs was born in Minnesota and the other was brought in this summer from St. Louis. The Pioneer Press says the cubs were brought together in their infancy on July 19 to ensure the best socialization.

The zoo is still looking for help naming the cubs. The zoo will pick the top three names submitted on their Facebook page and visitors can vote on their favorite. The names will be announced Oct. 29.

A pair of Amur leopard cubs went on display at the zoo last month.
