Walt Disney World Expecting Tiger Cubs This Fall at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

New members of the Animal Kingdom family are expected to make their appearance later this fall.  Sohni and Malosi, Sumatran Tigers that live at Disney’s Animal Kingdom are the proud, expectant parents of a litter of tiger cubs.  These new cubs are expected to be born sometime in August.  This is exciting news for the species as a whole, given that these tigers are extremely endangered.  There are reported to be only around 500 of these gorgeous Sumatran tigers left in the wild.


The Disney Conservation Fund issues this statement along with the announcement of the planned additions to the tiger family:

“Disney is involved in efforts to save critically endangered Sumatran tigers.  To date, the Conservation Fund (DCF) has provided nearly $2.5 million to protect tigers and their habitats.”

The mother, Sohni, has been at Disney’s Animal Kingdom since 2014, while the father, Malosi, has lived there since 2015.  You can see both of them during your tour of the Maharajah Jungle Trek in the Asia area of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Who else can’t wait to see tiger cubs?  We can’t wait to welcome them to the Animal Kingdom family!

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
