Siegfried & Roy will introduce the world to the newest additions to their animal family when four six-week-old tiger cubs make their first appearance at Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage Hotel & Casino on September 12 at noon.
Siegfried & Roy, including Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Horn, are a German-American duo of former stage magicians who became known for their appearances with white lions and white tigers.
Born on August 5 at the Secret Garden to mother Indira and father Svengali, these are the first tiger cubs to be introduced at The Mirage in five years.

“Our newest ‘Ambassadors of Conservation’ play an important role in our never-ending quest to protect these animals,” said Roy. “It is imperative to continue our conservation efforts to save these magnificent tigers for future generations to enjoy and cherish.”
Starting September 12, the siblings will be available for guests to see and range in color, Liberty, a pure white female; Maharani, a striped-white female; Hirah, a striped-golden female and Justice, a light golden boy.
The new clan has been dubbed the #SARMOTIcubs after the world-renowned magicians’ SARMOTI Foundation, which is dedicated to protect, conserve and preserve endangered and threatened animals globally, with particular focus on the big cats: tigers, lions, cheetahs, panthers and leopards.
The cubs will be available to view in a specially designed nursery starting at noon daily.
