(Big) cat video from the LR Zoo

Posted By on Thu, May 7, 2015 at 4:02 PM

Here's a break from politics: Malayan tiger cubs Liem, Olan and Eko, born Nov. 21, 2014 2013 (corrected by the Zoo), at the Little Rock Zoo, have been shipped to Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo for its Banyan Wilds exhibit. The video above is about the exhibit and the zoo's work in conserving the Malayan tiger, and includes stills of the Little Rock-born boys.

Little Rock sent the cubs' mother, Suhana, to the Bronx Zoo on a "breeding recommendation," a press release from the zoo says. Asmara, the female cub born to Suhana in the same litter with the boys, will stay in Little Rock and the zoo hopes she will get a mate. 

Father Liku is staying in Little Rock, too, but as soon as Asmara gets a mate, he'll be transferred to another zoo. 

That's a lot of tigers coming and going, all part of the Malayan tiger species survival plan.
