Adelaide Zoo in South Australia will now be looking to name its trio of Sumatran tiger cubs, after a gender-reveal party with dad Kembali and mum Delilah delivered the news that one is male and two are female.
Zoos SA assistant curator of carnivores Chad Crittle said the trio were in tip-top health. He described their births as a “fantastic outcome for the future of the species.”
The population of Sumatran tigers is “rapidly decreasing”, Zoos SA said, “due to poaching for the illegal wildlife trade and habitat destruction for the unsustainable production of palm oil.”
Over the next few months, the team at Zoos SA said they would work towards naming the new arrivals. Credit: Zoos SA via Storyful
