Hadiah is as adorable as anything you could imagine. She’s a rare Sumatran tiger who was born at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. These three videos show her at 3 weeks old (below), 6 and 7 weeks old on page 2, and 7 months old on page 3. So cute.
Hadiah at 3 Weeks Old
Hadiah has been raised by the zoo staff almost since birth because she was abandoned by her 15-year-old mother JoJo. Watch her being fed by a bottle, cuddling up to a tiger doll, and learning to walk. What could be cuter?
Actually we have something even cuter coming up. The next video, on page 2, is my absolute favorite.
The Woodland Park Zoo has won more Best National Exhibit awards from the Association of Zoos & Aquariums than any other zoological institution except the Bronx Zoo in New York. It has long been a pioneer in the field of conservation, sustainability, and immersion exhibits.

Hadiah at 6 and 7 Weeks Old
Now Hadiah is six and seven weeks old and starting to eat solid food. She is frisky and you’ll see her playing with a ball and a variety of other objects. The video is backed with a song from the ‘50s, Teach Me Tiger, which some people like al ot; if you don’t just turn your sound down. You’ll adore this video.
In the next video, on page 3, Hadiah is 7 months old and it is her first day in her outdoor public area, in view of an adoring public.

Hadiah at 7 Months Old
It’s Hadiah’s first day in her outdoor public space. She’s exploring, getting to know her new world, and playing with her toys. You can begin to see what she will be like when she grows up.
