Mek moved from San Diego up to Fresno in late 2013, where she had four more cubs in January of 2014, bringing the total up to 11. Two of those cubs, the males Cinta and Berani, have been here in San Diego since November of 2014. There are lots of pictures of the two of them on this blog.
Fresno Zoo is apparently going to renovate its tiger habitat and so . . . Mek is back in San Diego. Here are a few pictures from one of Mek's first days out in the large enclosure.
They are not even sure exactly how old Mek is, so they are using the assumption that she is 20 this year, which makes her a fairly old cat. Still, she is quite quick and alert, and from what I saw yesterday, still fairly aggressive and loud.
