Disney’s Animal Kingdom is celebrating the birth of a pair of Sumatran tiger cubs – the very first in the park’s history.
According to Dr Mark Penning, ‘Vice President, Animals, Science and Environment, Disney Parks,’ Sohni and her cubs are bonding well and will be out on the Maharajah Jungle Trek within the next several months.
Fewer than 500 Sumatran tigers exist in the wild, with the species critically endangered. These tiger cubs were bred by animal care experts at Disney’s Animal Kingdom through the Species Survival Plan, which is overseen by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
