Sumatran tiger cub Cahya is now nearly four-months old and recently weighted in at a healthy 12.8kgs.

Since her vaccination at 12-weeks of age, she and her mother Zayana have been venturing into a second habitat area (opposite the waterfall) that also offers a better chance of seeing her. Our Lowlands habitat was designed for exactly this purpose in mind – allowing our carnivore team flexibility in caring for these big cats - with three distinct areas connected by overhead tiger bridges.

Cahya is extremely active and is honing her developing skills with her patient mum Zayana – which includes lots of tussle and play. Carnivore keeper Kristin says, “Cahya can often be seen bouncing and pouncing. Playing with bark and ripping palm fronds down to attack – she’s quite the handful!”
