Norfolk, Va. – The Virginia Zoo in Norfolk welcomes two new additions to the zoo family – and NewsChannel 3 got a sneak peek on Thursday.
Two young Malayan tigers will soon make their debut at the Virginia Zoo. Say hello to Christopher and Api.
Christopher, a 2-year-old male, got up close and personal with NewsChannel 3′s Dominic Brown. Christopher came to Norfolk all the way from the San Diego Zoo.
And then there’s Api. Api is a 3-year-old female, and zoo officials tell NewsChannel 3 they hope to breed Api and Christopher someday – after a proper introduction.
Api actually turns 3 years old on Friday, April 5, 2013. She came all the way from the Bronx Zoo, officials say.
These two tigers joined the Norfolk zoo family back in February of 2013. They are currently isolated from the public, and will not be in their exhibit until later in April.
Once these two are ready to begin life in the exhibit, they will do so one at a time. Zoo officials say this is because they would like Api and Christopher to “meet” each other in a monitored setting.

Shawn Wayans stopped by our morning show last Friday.
Claudine and I greeted Shawn when he came in – and of course I had to tell him how much I love his hilarious movies. Truth.
Most notably: Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood; Scary Movie; and White Chicks. Gotten me through some rough times! He laughed.
More info below:
The Wayans family is filled with talented members, so there is no surprise that the two youngest brothers, Shawn and Marlon Wayans, have followed in their family’s footsteps as Hollywood icons.
Both Shawn and Marlon Wayans made their acting debut in 1989 in their brother Keenen Ivory Wayans’ feature film, “I’m Gonna Get You Sucka.” Immediately following their feature film debut, they joined the cast of the Emmy Award winning comedy series, “In Living Color.”
“The Wayans Bros.” sitcom, which Shawn and Marlon created and starred in, was the first WB show to be sold into syndication after heading up the WB network lineup for five years. Shawn and Marlon’s past film credits include the hit comedy, “Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in The Hood.” More recently Shawn and Marlon starred in the box office hit, “Little Man” and “White Chicks,” both of which they also co-wrote and produced. The brothers began co-writing this string of blockbusters with the smash “Scary Movie” and “Scary Movie 2.”
A new app has been created – for anyone who loves Instagram and Pinterest.
The companies have now combined two of your favorite internet addictions into one convenient app.
It’s called Pinstagram.
The app shows you photos and content from your Instagram account. The content shows up in a ‘waterfall’ layout and from there, you pin your Instagram photos right to your Pinterest boards in one easy step.
The app was created to bridge the two sites, so you don’t have to open both when posting.
Download the app by visiting www.pinstagram.co.
There, you will be directed to sign in with Instagram if you already have it on your device.
You may also visit the iPad app store – and the app is free.
Right now the app is only for iPads 1 and 2.
Don’t forget to find WTKR and WGNT on Pinterest.
Here is a Priority shoot I did back in May.
