Austrian zoo unveils 5 rare white tiger cubs, one of which is named 'Obama'

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."

In the meantime, check out the photos above and the video below. And if you still haven't had your fill of white tiger cubs, check out the photos of white tiger cub triplets a zoo in Argentina showed off earlier this year.

You teabaggers take so many non issues and try to make them issues. Obama is not nor ever has been Muslim. He goes to a Christian church and that is absolutely not allowed by Muslims Its punishable by death in many places. Wake up your stupid fluff doesn't fool or sway anyone. Ecept stupid right wingers.

Which country is it that keeps putting down useless, but otherwise healthy animals, that it has no need for, and that no other countries want either??? Who is taking bets that they'll regret naming it Obama soon enough?
