Meet Maaki


No two tigers have the same stripes. Like human fingerprints, their stripe patterns are unique to each individual.


  • Birthday:  November 18, 2003

  • Species:  Siberian Tiger – Panthera Tigris

  • Status: Endangered

Maaki did not spend his early cubhood with us as he was at another facility down south that did not emphasize “tiger manners”.  His very different dynamic brought friction when interacting with his brother Wakin and sister Anpawi.  Since then, Maaki has developed into quite the character, often found pestering his sister or scratching on his favorite post.  Although, what he truly enjoys the most is cuddling with Anpawi, where he seems never more than a foot away from her.  At times, Maaki can be stubborn, but his affectionate and loving personality doesn’t allow him to be obstinate for very long.  He never turns down an opportunity to say hello or give a kiss if you ask nicely (usually treats are involved!).  This past week he celebrated his 15th birthday along with Anpawi and Wakin in true fashion, with a meaty bone and presents.

Maaki waits patiently for his training class where he learns simple commands and of course his favorite part, the treats!
