Pumpkin Cat Toys for Point Defiance's Tiger Twins
October 22, 2010
The Point Defiance Zoo's newest SumatranTiger cub twins got a special Halloween treat this week as you can see in the video below. Bima, a male, and Mali, a female, have been growing steadily since their birth May 25th, but still have a long way to go before they reach their adult weight of up to 300lbs. Keepers say the cubs names, which were selected by the public, are quite fitting. “Their new names match their personalities perfectly,” said staff biologist Andy Goldfarb. “The male, Bima, really is brave. He’s always the first to explore and try new things. His sister, Mali, is so beautiful and elegant.” The pictures were taken at 8 weeks but the video is from just last week.
