Posted: Updated:
BRIDGEPORT -

Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport introduced its newest residents to the public on Wednesday.

Amur tiger cubs Reka and Zeya and three maned wolf pups made their debut.

The tiger cubs have been cared for in the zoo's Animal Health Center since their birth.

The wolf pups -- two females and one male -- were born back in December.

The Amur tiger is an endangered species. Maned wolves are considered "near threatened" in the wild.
