Born on July 25, Kai, now six weeks old, charmed onlookers with his playful behavior. Despite not yet having adult teeth, he entertained everyone, even playfully interacting with a cameraman. His sharp claws reminded him of his wild nature despite his cute appearance.

Kai’s name, “victorious” or “strong,” perfectly suits his spirited personality. During his first public appearance, he demonstrated his independence and lively character.

Patrick Martin-Vegue, his handler, ensured Kai’s safety and introduced him to Sita, Dreamworld’s calm and experienced tiger matriarch.

This meeting between Kai and Sita was significant. At 16 years old, Sita’s gentle and caring nature shone through as she accepted Kai without any issue, reassuring everyone involved.

Kai’s growth journey is far from over. He is expected to gain another 154 kilograms before reaching adulthood.
