Photo: And triplets make four

Sumatran celebration: Jaya walks out with Kirana, Dari and Indah at the Sumatran tiger enclosure at the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium in Tacoma on Thursday. The Sumatran tiger triplets born two months ago went on public display Friday at the zoo. Zoo officials said the triplets born Oct. 8 are a cause for celebration for the endangered species. Only about 300 remain in the wild on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. About 400 live in zoos worldwide. The cubs had been kept behind the scenes with their mother while they put on weight. The three female tigers each weighed about 3 pounds at birth and now weigh about 15 pounds each. (Associated Press)
