One of our most exciting photos we shared this week was snapped at Disney’s Animal Kingdom to accompany a very special announcement – a tiger cub (or cubs) are on the way!

One of the park’s Sumatran tigers, Sohni, is expecting a new additions this month. This milestone pregnancy is especially exciting, since Sumatran tigers are critically endangered with less than 500 left in the world.

Dr. Mark Penning, Vice President, Animals, Science and Environment, Disney Parks, shared the exciting news on the blog earlier this week. For full details, check out his full blog post here. And keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog in the coming weeks for more news on this expanding family!


  • We have been following Sohni and Malosi for almost the last year. We were just down at WDW in June and inquired about Sohni. We are so very excited about the impending baby tigers and wish both Mother and babies lots of love and health. Thank you for sharing it. I will keep an eye out on the blog for updates.

  • How exciting! I cannot wait for the arrival of the cub(s)!

  • Hopefully I’ll get to see them running around during my December trip!

  • Best wishes for Sohni, Malosi and the cubs!
    She is such a beautiful cat! She posed for me a couple times and the pictures are fantastic. We are going down in late October so hopefully even if we aren’t able to see her with the cubs, Disney will post photos of the new family!
