WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Two Sumatran tiger cubs made their first public appearance Monday between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. at the National Zoo.

A spokesperson for the zoo says that staff expects the cubs will only be on display for an hour on Monday. Depending on the weather, the cubs will be on display on the following days, according to the spokesperson.

Tiger Damai gave birth to the two cubs on August 5. Since then, the cubs have undergone veterinary exams and a swimming reliability test, which they passed.
