Denver Zoo tigers Nikolai and Thimbu are ready for their new home in “The Edge” tiger exhibit after recent wellness checkups.

The 6-year-old tigers will join Nikita in “The Edge” ahead of the new $2.2 million exhibit space’ grand opening March 17-24, according to the zoo. Check out the video below to see what a trip to the vet looks like for two, roughly 400-pound Amur tigers (with very sharp teeth).
