Dreamworld welcomes new tiger cub

Dreamworld has welcomed another new tiger cub to its Tiger Island clan.

The baby boy arrived into the world on Sunday 26 May to mother Nika and father Raja, weighing in at 1.69 kilograms.

He is the only cub of his litter, however the new addition is uncle to Adira’s litter of two cubs who were born just over a month ago.


Tiger Island Manager, Patrick Martin-Vegue said the three cubs will grow up together.

“As a single cub, socialisation is typically more difficult but in our circumstances with the arrival of Adira’s litter just one-month prior on 26 April, he will be growing up alongside them and have a more enriching life with other cats around his age,” he said.

The newest bundle of joy will remain in the Tiger Island back-of-house nursery den for two weeks before making his first public appearance.

“We are excited to be growing our Tiger Island family with our three new arrivals this year set to make a huge imprint on Dreamworld and in the hearts of our team members and guests,” Mr Martin-Vegue said.
