Meet your newest obsession at the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium. Kali (pronounced KAH-lee) is a three-week-old Sumatran Tiger who will make her first appearance on May 9. Visitors will be able to visit Kali daily at 10am and 2pm, and are sure to fall in love. Check out a VIDEO of her here.
Sumatran Tigers, which hail from Indonesia, are among the most endangered species of tigers on the planet, with only an estimated 300 living in the wild today; Kali is the third born in the U.S. this year.
According to Steven Ok, PDZA staff biologist, Kali is a remarkable cub, “She’s spunky, robust and energetic,” and is growing quickly.
“She’ll be living in the Cub Den, which has a glass window for viewing, but, like most newborns, she likely will sleep most of the day and the public may get only peek-a-boo views at other times of the day,” according to a press release from the zoo, but that doesn’t mean she won’t awe her audience, regardless.
