Three Amur tiger cubs born on July 7 are currently on display at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium. 

The two males and one female are on exhibit with their mother, Isabella. Their father is on display in a separate exhibit in the Cat Complex. 

Zoo officials say the cats are curious. They still are nursing exclusively but will begin to eat meat around three months old. 

You can help pick names for them. The official entry box will be located in front of the Amur tiger display. Submissions will be accepted until August 25. The zookeepers that care for them will pick the winning names which will be announced September 1. Those who enter the winning names will receive a zoo gift basket.
