The first ever critically-endangered Sumatran Tiger cubs to be born at Adelaide Zoo have arrived safe, sound and extremely snuggly in the Year of the Tiger.
“There’s a whole puddle of stripy little legs, arms and tails in the cubbing den at the moment. It’s the best gift ever,” said an elated Elaine Bensted, CE of Zoos SA.
“This is a significant moment in conservation as the Sumatran Tiger species has less than 400 adults surviving in the wild.
“Delilah and Kembali’s cubs are vital to ensuring strong genetics in the breeding program and indeed the future of the species.
