Introducing … Conrad, the “paw-some” new addition to Maharajah Jungle Trek at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park!
Conrad came to us through a @Zoos_Aquariums’ Species Survival Plan (SSP) recommendation, which helps sustain healthy populations in managed care, including critically endangered Sumatran tigers like Conrad.
Pounce on the opportunity to see this cool cat right “meow” on Maharajah Jungle Trek!
