Valdosta - WALB got the first look at Wild Adventures newest stars today.

Two baby tigers.

The baby boy is a royal white Bengal tiger.

The little girl a standard Bengal.

The adorable cubs are just five weeks old and now greet visitors every morning at the park entrance.

Trainers will work the tigers into the park's shows as they grow up. 

"As they grow up, we have a new show starting June 6th called tigers and toys. We are going to be using the adult tigers right now but when they grow up they'll be in that show where we are just going to be playing, have a good time, go swimming with them and stuff like that," says Trainer Chris Kilpatrick. 

You can also help name the cubs.

The park will announce details of a naming contest soon.

Wild Adventures now has a total of ten tigers.
