After almost half an hour, some sign of life from Nindiri. It didn't last long.
After a while she finally decided to go outside and sit in the sun. Still no sign of the little ones.
Finally, an hour and a half after I got there, they poked their little heads out. This is Maderas, the female.
Maderas seems to be a lot more adventurous than her brother Tikal. She was wandering all over the place checking out the new surroundings. They've only been allowed outside since Tuesday, and from talking with some friends, it sounds like this morning may have been the first time they've gotten very far from the doorway.
Where ever they went, mom kept a close watch on them.
Brother and sister, Tikal and Maderas.
One very protective mother.
I think this next shot has to be one of my favorites from the day.
On my way across the Zoo at the start of the day I did stop to check out the little crocs that are in the pool that's partway down the Tiger Trail.
