The white lions and tigers moved to Jungle Island from South Carolina. They got a chance to explore their new enclosure, built specifically for them, while dozens of people watched.

Jungle Island has been in financial trouble for quite some time. In fact, next month, it must pay the federal government $2 million to cover a loan.

Representatives for Jungle Island would not say how much all of this is costing, but a spokesperson confirmed that the park will be able to pay the $2 million next month and promises to fulfill all financial obligations.

In fact, Jungle Island's new residents could help, as cats are its most popular exhibit.
