Kavi is the newest edition to the tiger family, joining females Damai and Soyono

The Prowl around the Great Cats exhibit will over special demonstrations at 11 a.m., 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. Keepers will also talk about the daily care of the Zoo’s Sumatran tigers and how the tigers contribute to conservation efforts.
