Tiger cubs take first dip before going on display

WASHINGTON, DC - NOVEMBER 06: A female Sumatran Tiger cub named Sukacita is placed into a moat by biologist Leigh Pitsko (R) before the cub performed her "swim test" at the Great Cats exhibit of the National Zoo November 6, 2013 in Washington, DC. Sukacita is one of two Sumatran Tigers born August 5, 2013 and before going on exhibit they must pass the swim test. The cubs must be able to keep their heads above water, navigate the shallow end of the moat, and have the strength and agility to climb onto dry land on their own.
