MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - The zoo in Manhattan has two new stripped additions.

The Manhattan Mercury (https://bit.ly/1YwJoNL) reports that they’re two Malayan tigers named Malik and Hakim. The 8-year-old brothers come from Cincinnati and arrived at the Sunset Zoo earlier this month. They’ll go on display Dec. 12 after the standard quarantine process is complete.

Zoo director Scott Shoemaker says the zoo is “thrilled” to reconnect the Manhattan community to the “gorgeous big cats.” There also are plans to modernize their home.

The zoo’s previous tiger, Bob, died in the spring of 2014.
