This 5-week-old tiger cub, orange at birth but rapidly turning pure white as he loses his newborn fur, is looking for a name. He has brilliant blue eyes and a sweet and playful nature. He weighs a small and cuddly 10 pounds now, but King Kong Zoological Park owner John Curtis says he will easily reach 600 pounds as an adult.
Ranger – King Kong Zoological Park is home to a 5-week-old white Siberian tiger cub who is small enough to tumble around and stretch out comfortably in a child’s playpen.
His ears look a little large for his head, and he pads around clumsily on paws that are a few sizes too big for his body. They are hints of the 600-pound cat he will turn into in the coming years at the zoo on U.S. 19/129, next to the flea markets.
Born at 3:42 a.m. June 13, John Curtis was nearby when a tiger named Juliette began to give birth.
