View from the Zoo: Predator that leads a solitary life in the wild
This week at Flamingo Land we celebrated one of our Sumatran tiger’s birthday. We have a male tiger named Bawa and our female tiger, Surya, turned eight on Sunday 5 February. Bawa originally came from the Wildlife Heritage Foundation in Kent, and Surya from Paignton zoo in Devon. Bawa is named after an island just off the coast of Sumatra whilst Surya is Indonesian for Sun.

Recently the staff at Flamingo Land Resort celebrated the eighth birthday of Jackson the addax. He lives with Miller who is six years old and they both came from Marwell zoo. The pair share a paddock with some of our Rothschild giraffes.
