Two rare Sumatran tiger cubs born at the San Antonio Zoo have been adjusting to public life by romping with each other and ganging up on their mother.

Zoo spokeswoman Debbie Vanskike (van-SKYK') on Tuesday said the female cubs have grown to about 25 pounds each. The cats were born Aug. 3 and went on display about a month ago.

Vanskike says naming rights to the endangered cubs will be auctioned during a Nov. 14 fundraising event.

She says the cubs have been bonding with their mother, a 6-year-old named Kemala. Vanskike says the cubs like to chase and jump on top of the first-time mom.

The father of the cubs, named Raguno, remains at the zoo but is not exhibited with the three females.
