CJ the Sumatran Tiger born on March 3, 2013 will soon be moving to his new home at the LA Zoo. His move is based on a recommendation from the Sumatran Tiger Species Survival Plan® and coincides with the timing that young tigers usually leave their mothers. He is so big now, that it can be hard to tell him apart from his mom Baha.
Come say farewell to CJ! He is on exhibit with mom starting around 3:30 pm each day until October 2nd. In addition, he will be on exhibit all day from Sunday, September 21st through Tuesday, September 23rd.
Baha will be reintroduced to Castro the male in the months following CJ's departure so you will soon see two tigers on exhibit again.
