SFGD Carli the Tiger

The Six Flags Great Adventure animal care team is celebrating the birth of a rare Siberian tiger cub. The fuzzy, playful, female cub is only the second tiger cub born in the Safari in 15 years. She is the first cub to mom Nadya, who was raised in a highly unique litter that paired her with African lion Zuri three years ago. The two large cats still live together.

Nadya’s new cub is named Carli, in honor of soccer great and New Jersey native Carli Lloyd. She is being hand-raised by the animal care team.

Nadya showed great mothering skills at first; but when she failed to nurse her cub, we stepped in. Today, Carli is doing extremely well. She weighs 12 pounds and when full grown, will weigh more than 500 lbs. Her large paws are indicative of the massive cat she will grow to become one day.

The animal care team plans to reintroduce Carli to her mother and “unique aunt” when she is older. Tigers are typically solitary animals, while lions are more social. The strong bond that Carli’s mom Nadya shares with lion Zuri will hopefully mean that the trio will become their own pride one day.

Siberian tigers are endangered and rank as the largest cats in the world. There are estimated to be fewer than 500 Siberian tigers left in the wild.
