Endangered tiger cub takes first steps outside in London zoo

Footage provided by the Zoological Society of London Zoo shows the as-yet-unnamed cub strolling across a small enclosure before being scooped up by its mother Gaysha.

''The cub has so far mostly stayed tucked up with Gaysha in their cosy behind-the-scenes cubbing den, but with such lovely weather yesterday it’s clear she decided it was time for her little one to take its first steps in the outside world,'' said ZSL London Zoo tiger keeper Kathryn Sanders.

Zookeepers will discover the cubs' gender in a few week's time after it has had its first health check.
