Delilah the Sumatran tiger has made her debut at Adelaide Zoo. The five year old tiger has been in quarantine since she arrived at the zoo from Queensland on December 30th 2021.

The five-year-old Sumatran Tiger, the rarest and smallest of all tiger species, arrived in Adelaide on 31 December after transferring from Australia Zoo in Queensland.


“Delilah is settling into the Immersion exhibit superbly well,” said Senior Keeper of Carnivores, Arliah Hayward.


“She’s super calm and already flirty with male Kembali. We have seen and heard her chuffing to him and they have locked eyes across the corridor and through the mesh.


“Delilah’s unusual as she’s one of the only few Sumatran Tigers I’ve worked with who has spots as well as stripes. Hopefully tiger fans big and small will come in to welcome Delilah to her new home,” finished Arliah.

Delilah has come to Adelaide Zoo in hopes she will find love with resident male, Kembali and hopefully welcome cubs. Before this exciting event she will be given time to settle in to her habitat and bond with her keepers.

Sumatran tigers are the last tiger remaining in Indonesia where their numbers have been reduced to between 300 and 500 individuals. Their decline has been driven by habitat loss and poaching to supply the illegal wildlife trade.
