Last month I shared that Animal Kingdom’s Sumatran Tiger “Sohni” was expecting tiger cubs. Well I am incredibly excited to announce that Sohni has given birth to a pair of the cutest cubs I have ever seen. Only a few days old and these cubs are already super-stars as they are the first in the park’s history!
Mom and cubs are being monitored by a dedicated team of animal experts at the Animal Kingdom who are providing around-the-clock care. Sohni and her babies are are bonding well and guests will be able to see them soon in the next few months on the Maharajah Jungle Trek.
Until they make their big debut check out this video of them exploring their new world on adorable wobbly little legs:
Disney is proud to play an important role in the worldwide conservation and understanding of Sumatran tigers, a critically endangered species. Fewer than 500 Sumatran tigers exist in the wild, as the species is facing significant threats like habitat loss, poaching and the illegal wildlife trade. To date, the Disney Conservation Fund (DCF) has provided nearly $4 million to protect wild cat species like tigers, lions and snow leopards in 25 countries around the world.
Stay tuned for more fun updates about Sohni and her cubs. In the meantime, visit DisneyAnimals.com to learn more about tigers and how you can help support them in the wild. Guests at Disney’s Animal Kingdom also can take part in Connect to Protect, a new mobile adventure that invites guests to participate in conservation “missions” with a digital scientist while exploring Pandora and helping protect the habits of at-risk animals here on Earth, like Sumatran tigers.
