Scout the Tiger Arrives at Hamilton Zoo

Jetpets are proud to have assisted in the delicate move of Scout the Tiger to his new home at Hamilton Zoo.

Travelling from Orana Wildlife Park to Hamilton Zoo in June this year, the teams and staff of all parties involved worked together to accomplish a safe and successful relocation.

Scout arrived at Hamilton Zoo from Orana Wildlife Park in June as part of the international breeding program for his species. Scout has been matched with Kirana in this vital role.

Being a male, Scout can quickly be recognized due to his larger frame and his large white ruff around his face. He has quickly won over the hearts of his keepers, as well as Kirana, and frequently produces a friendly greeting called a prusten – which is more commonly known as a “chuff”.

Scout is often active throughout the day and is spending much of his time exploring both enclosures thoroughly. You may even see him taking a dip in the pool if you’re lucky!

We wish Scout all the best in his new home with Kirana. For information on how you can visit Scout at Hamilton Zoo, please visit their website:-
