    Are the Sumatran and Bengal tigers kept in the same enclosure at Tiger Island (excluding the mother and father who were not hand-raised)?

    Yes, both Sumatran and Bengal tigers are displayed together. Gives a good comparison between them.

    yep, the two have been succesful in breeding producing two litters. One of two Indah and Rahni and the second litter of three: Jaya, Shanti and ndari.

    A cub from perth zoo Sali came to dreamworld after she was rejected by her mum (perhaps to do with her sibling's deaths??) She apparently gets on really well with the big Bengal males Mohan and Taj.
