New Zealand zoo gets Sumatran tiger from Israel

Oz the Tiger is settling in at Auckland Zoo.

The 20-month-old Sumatran tiger arrived in the country from Israel this morning.

He gets a month at his new bachelor pad before female Sumatran Molek will be brought up from Hamilton Zoo to breed with him.

Auckland Zoo vet Dr Richard Jakob-Hoff has given Oz the once over and got a look at his teeth. He says the tiger is settling down in his new area and is a very laid back animal.

Dr Jakob-Hoff says Oz will be ready to meet zoo visitors next week.
