"The cubs are wobbly on their feet, but they are curious about the world outside their den."
Follow three tiger cubs from birth to adulthood, photographed close-up in the wild by award-winning photographer Suzi Eszterhas. See the cubs exploring and tumbling, pouncing on sticks and splashing in water, boxing and play-fighting until, at two years old, they are fully grown and ready to rule a territory of their own.
