You may have met this six-week-old male Sumatran Tiger cub, born at Point Defiance Zoo on August 22, through our ZooBorn.com article on September 13. In our update of September 28 we announced that the zoo was asking the public to help them pick his name by voting for one of six choices.
And the winning name is... DUMAI! Point Defiance sent their thanks out to all who particiapted.
Sumatran Tigers are Critically Endangered. Only an estimated 300 remain in the wild in their native Sumatra, and their births in zoos are extremely rare. Duma can be seen daily on exhibit, exploring and playing daily in the zoo’s Cub Den, along wtih his parents, Jaya and Malosi.
