Keeping a Sumatran Tiger Healthy at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Sumatran Tiger Anala lives in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park in Florida, where she’s seen in the Maharajah Jungle Trek as an educational ambassador for her species.

In this clip from Disney+’s Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Anala is put through a series of tests and challenges by animal keeper Megan. The small training tasks not only keep the tiger mentally stimulated and physically fit, but they also train her to respond in ways that help the keepers regularly check on her health.
