They didn’t have names as of last week, but two tiger cubs were already starting to fit in at Out of Africa Wildlife Park.Camp Verde’s Out of Africa Wildlife Park recently acquired two  7-month-old male Bengal tiger cubs, one orange and one white, believed to be brothers, that had been kept as pets in the Phoenix area. They weigh 120 pounds and despite their kitten-like playfulness, they could still do harm to an inexperienced person, even unintentionally.

The two arrived at the park after being transported up from the Phoenix area.

They had been kept in an apartment and a backyard in Gilbert and Phoenix after a man sold them after bringing them from Texas, said Dean Harrison, one of the park’s owners.

At some point, the tigers were also in Wisconsin, according to the Arizona Game and Fish Department.
