New members of the Animal Kingdom family are expected to make their appearance later this fall. Sohni and Malosi, Sumatran Tigers that live at Disney’s Animal Kingdom are the proud, expectant parents of a litter of tiger cubs. These new cubs are expected to be born sometime in August. This is exciting news for the species as a whole, given that these tigers are extremely endangered. There are reported to be only around 500 of these gorgeous Sumatran tigers left in the wild.
The Disney Conservation Fund issues this statement along with the announcement of the planned additions to the tiger family:
“Disney is involved in efforts to save critically endangered Sumatran tigers. To date, the Conservation Fund (DCF) has provided nearly $2.5 million to protect tigers and their habitats.”
The mother, Sohni, has been at Disney’s Animal Kingdom since 2014, while the father, Malosi, has lived there since 2015. You can see both of them during your tour of the Maharajah Jungle Trek in the Asia area of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
