It might be hard to believe, but tigers love to swim. These little cubs even like to go underwater.

Maxim will grow to be 400-500 pounds and Mischa will weigh between 350-400 pounds when she's fully grown.

They use their big paws to paddle through the water, kind of a doggie-paddle style.

Maxim and Mischa love to splash around in the tank -- perfect for a day in the summer heat.

The cubs take their cues from the older cats in the exhibit, including Odin, Fedor, Akasha and Nalin.
