The Sumatran tiger is a subspecies of tiger native to the Indonesian island of Sumatra. The tiger’s dark orange fur allows them to blend into dense tropical rainforests.

Unfortunately, the tigers are critically endangered due to threats from habitat loss and poaching.

Guests can see Conrad and the rest of the tigers at Animal Kingdom now. The Maharajah Jungle Trek features a number of other animals, including Gibbons, Elds deer, Blackbuck and Komodo dragon.
