Tiger brothers open Christmas gift boxes at Whipsnade Zoo_Original Video_m205722.mp4

Three tiger brothers at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, in Bedfordshire, have been given Christmas gift boxes to unwrap to mark the festive season. The three-year-old tigers - named Dmitri, Makari and Czar - reside at the UK's biggest zoo, where zookeepers sprayed each box with a different scent for the animals to interact with. Sarah McGregor, team leader at Whipsnade, said: “Spraying the boxes with different scents, such as perfumes or catnip, made the gift boxes even more exciting for them and helped engage their natural instincts to sniff-out and investigate new things.” Sign up to our free newsletters by clicking here
