Bioparc Fuengirola welcomes new Sumatran tiger

Bioparc Fuengirola welcomes new Sumatran tiger
  • It is hoped that Harau will mate with the Bioparc's female Sumatran tiger, Asmara

Harau, a two-year-old Sumatran tiger, has a new home. From now on he will live in Fuengirola’s Bioparc as part of a Europe-wide conservation programme designed to encourage reproduction outside the species’ natural habitat.

It is hoped that Harau, who has arrived from Le Pal zoo in France, will mate with the Bioparc's female Sumatran tiger, Asmara.

However, at this present stage, it will be a while before the pair can be seen together as these territorial animals need a period of time to become accustomed to the presence of other members of their own species.
