Five rare white tiger cubs made their debut at the White Zoo in Kernhof, Austria over the weekend, ABC News reports. According The Guardian, the cuddly little Bengal cubs, born back on April 25, are believed to be Europe's first quintuplet of white tiger cubs.

The adorable litter is made up four females and one male, WPTV notes, adding that the girl cubs were all given rather typical names -- Lali, Lela, Lila, and Lulu. But it's the lone boy cub who was given the memorable moniker of 'Obama.'

"We are very, very proud and very happy, because they are totally normal, there is nothing wrong (with them)," WPTV quotes Zoo Director Herbert Eder as having said.

And what about that curious naming of the boy cub? Well, Eder told ABC News, "I don't know why we named the boy Obama. Maybe the president will read this news online. He is invited anytime to visit."
