Disney Announces Names of the Sumatran Tiger Cubs


The Disney Parks Blog shared photos and video of the Sumatran Tiger cubs that were born at Disney's Animal Kingdom back in August. One male and one female cub were born to first time mother Sohni.

The male cub's (above left) name is Jeda which is Malay for "pause". The blog explains that the name is inspired by his markings where the cub has two parallel lines inside a stripe on his head that resemble a pause button on a remote control.

The female cub's (above right)  name is Anala which is Hindi for "fiery and sizzling".

The cubs are not yet out on exhibit at the Maharajah Jungle Trek, but are expected to join their mother (Sohni) and father (Malosi) in the coming months.
