Trio of jaguar cubs charms Russia

A zoo in St Petersburg is celebrating the arrival of jaguar cub triplets - a very rare occurrence when the animals are bred in captivity.

The cubs, two male and one female, have yet to be named but a contest has been arranged so that the people of the city can play a part in the decision.

As they grow older they are likely to be moved to different zoos around the world.
