Like kids at summer camp and even some college students, the National Zoo's tiger cubs had to take a swim reliability test on Wednesday morning to prove they're fit to go on exhibit. And the results are in: They passed!

'To go on exhibit'? These rare tiger cubs are very cute but I can't stand the thought of them being on exhibit.

Christeen, they will be surrounded by a moat with water in it, where they will be exhibited. They wanted to make sure the cubs could swim, so they wouldn't have any incidents of drowning.

Lil sweeties were none too happy about this! But the zoo has to ensure their safety.
