White tiger cubs draw suggested names

The Buenos Aires Zoo has been swamped with thousands of suggested names for three rare white tiger cubs that made their public debut this week.

The cubs — two females and a male — were born Dec. 23 to parents Conde and Bety at the Argentine capital zoo. The three siblings have been romping in the grass of their outdoor pen to the delight of schoolchildren out for South America's summer vacations.

"They're just so playful," Buenos Aires Zoo spokeswoman Florencia Presa said Friday.
