A tiger, a rabbit, or a whale?
The answer may surprise you.
All animals are eligible to be added to your zoo menu, but the zoo’s tiger is the most interesting.
According to the zoo, the tigers are among the rarest of the species.
“It’s a big deal, and the only one we have in our zoo,” said Amanda T. Burdette, director of the zoo.
“Tigers are very shy.
They can be a little bit scared of people.”
The tiger cub, named Jules, is being trained to be a good member of the herd.
(Amanda T. “Amanda” Burdettes) Burdett said the zoo plans to make the tiger the first animal that will be available to the public on zoo grounds.
The tiger’s first name, Alys, means “light” in Spanish.
“The name is the same as the animal,” said Burdets mother, Amanda.
She will also be able play fetch, hunt for food, and explore her environment. “
Jules will be able to run at night and will be taught how to swim.

The Zoo says the cubs name should be Jules. “
We’re learning so much about this animal, and we’re just going to keep working at it,” Burdes mother said.

“But we have a lot of people that want to see her.”
For those interested in getting to know Jules better, the zoo is offering a $100 reward.
