TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- It's a girl!

On Thursday, the Topeka Zoo tweeted one of its new cubs is female. She's the first of the three tiny tigers whose sex is known.

On Tuesday, the trio of yet unnamed cubs went in for their very first neonate exam.

“The first two weeks are crucial,” said staff veterinarian Shelley Llizo. “We will continue to closely monitor all aspects of their health, including their weight.”

The exam went quickly, they said. The cubs' momma Jingga had breakfast two dens over while her three day-old litter were checked out, but as soon as it was over she returned to take care of her brood.
