Sumatran Tiger (Sage)
Hi there, my name is Sage and I’m a stunning Sumatran tiger cub! My brother Malcolm, sister Sallie and I were all born on the 18th of February 2020 and we are the first set of triplets cubs birthed at Australia Zoo. We were all named after a family in honour of their significant conservation efforts with Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors.
I am the smallest of my siblings, but also the cheekiest and I keep my keepers on their toes. I love mornings as I am usually the first one to wake up. This allows me more time to plan what mischief I can get up to. I have a very playful nature and can jump higher and further than my siblings. My favourite game is to sneak up on my brother Malcolm and jump on top of him. It’s great fun! I also love my food, finishing my plate before the other cubs. I am a confident swimmer and will happily play in the tiger pool at Tiger Temple for as long as I can.
When I am older, I will be part of a breeding program that is critically important to my species in the wild. Sumatran tigers can be found throughout the remaining grasslands and forests in Sumatra, but unfortunately, it’s believed there are less than 350 of us left. Australia Zoo has a conservation project in Sumatra, helping to protect us from poaching and the illegal wildlife trade, so when you adopt me, you’re helping my species in the wild!
