Weekends mean playtime!

Our newly-arrived tigers, 18-month-old Amur, Tschuna, and 17-month-old Sumatran, Daseep, got down to some serious playtime yesterday in their internal enclosure – just hours before they prepare to meet DZG visitors.

Head of Media and Communications, Jill Hitchman, said: “They love to play together and don’t like to be apart for very long. They are quite mischevious and like it when the keepers call in.

“They are eating well and staff are very happy with the ease of the move.”

CAPTIONS: Right at home: newly-arrived tigers Daseep and Tschuna.
