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.
