Tiger introductions 6-25-12

Malayan tigers Baheem (male) and Sita (female) met each other on exhibit without a barrier between them for the first time last week!  They have been introduced by Keepers in careful stages to make sure they remain curious about, but not aggressive with, each other.  So far so good, and if all goes well we hope to have tiger cubs sometime in the future.  Keep your fingers crossed!
