Get excited, Washington: There are two new tiger cubs at the zoo!

Yes, Lunch Break has been a little bit animal-heavy as of late. But we couldn't pass up a live penguin cam, nor could we skip this video of the two new-born tiger cubs at the National Zoo. The twins were born Monday evening and, per the Washington Post's Michael Ruane, will begin to open their eyes sometime in the "next few weeks."

The cubs won't go on display until later this fall but, in the mean time, you can sneak a peak via the Zoo's tiger cub cam.
