Visitors get to pet three tiger cubs at a safari park in Chongqing, China.

A pair of golden tigers at the safari park gave birth to the triplets late last month. Two of the tiger cubs have golden fur, and the third cub has white fur.

The cubs, which have become star attractions at the park, celebrated their first month on Thursday.

Golden tigers are a type of bengal tiger which carry genes for both the golden and white colours.
