Vitas is a tiger cub at a zoo in Siberia who’s winning over fans around the world because they think his high-pitched noises, is his way of singing.

Zoo keepers say he’s been doing this from a very young age — they think he was trying to get his mom’s attention.

This singing tiger has attracted more visitors to the zoo.

Vitas is named after a popular falsetto Russian language singer.
