Arthur is social with his keepers, however he keeps his guard up at times. He settled in soon enough as it is hard to resist the charm of the volunteers who bring treats to their newest charges.
Arthur loves his brother Andre dearly and the two are often found cuddled up in the same den or lounging together in one of their pools. Arthur is the dominant tiger in the group and shows off his fierce attitude at dinner time. We can only guess the feeding situation of their previous Read More
Amanda is the most timid of the three tigers who live together. She is very shy and years after her rescue will still slink away to hide when people approach her enclosure.
Although at times she has the opposite reaction and will charge the side of the enclosure and roar. It is unclear if she is doing this to be aggressive or to get a rise out of her keepers for her own entertainment.
