About Tiger Territory

Visitors to Tiger Territory will embark on a journey through an Indonesian habitat, coming face-to-face with our Sumatran tigers through the floor-to-ceiling glass windows.

The exhibit has been designed with ZSL’s team of keepers, conservationists and experts to ensure that it perfectly suits the needs of a tiger.

Tigers are excellent climbers and like to observe their terrain from a towering vantage point and Tiger Territory features tall trees to scale and high feeding poles to encourage natural predatory behaviours.

Sumatran tiger cubs 

Three Sumatran tiger cubs in their enclosure with mum Gaysha.

Three Critically Endangered Sumatran tiger cubs were born to mum Gaysha and dad Asim on Monday 27 June 2022.    

The cubs stayed behind-the-scenes in their cubbing den for a few weeks before Gaysha brought them out into their Tiger Territory home.  

The stripy trio have hit developmental milestones including opening their eyes to taking their first steps. 

Our Sumatran tiger cubs are growing up fast

They love to play in their paddock with mum and dad.


Tiger cub triplets have their first health check

Vets gave the trio a thorough nose-to-tail examination and confirmed the cubs’ sexes – two males and one female.

Our Sumatran tiger cub triplets have been named  

The three names were chosen by ZSL supporters as the opportunity to name them was auctioned at our Safari in the City Gala - raising £51,000 for ZSL’s vital work for wildlife in the process.  

Sumatran tiger cub Inca

Name: Inca 

Sex: Female 

Character: Inca loves her food and is always ready to defend a bit of chicken from her brothers if necessary. 


Sumatran tiger cub, Crispin

Name: Zac 

Sex: Male 

Character: Zac’s the largest of the tiger cub trio and loves playfighting with his sister, Inca. So they’re both getting an early start on developing their hunting skills.

Name: Crispin 

Sex: Male 

Character: Crispin is a little quieter than his two boisterous siblings. He’s and is definitely a mummy’s boy and loves to snuggle up to Gaysha. 


Sumatran tiger conservation 

Tiger Territory will inform and inspire a generation of people to treasure the tiger and understand their role in its survival. It will also help fund ZSL’s tiger conservation work in the field, providing a lifeline for years to come.
