Kerinci is one of the two female Sumatran tigers at the Zoo. She was found as a cub in the wild in 1984 and donated by Indonesia's Jakarta Zoo as part of the Sumatran Tiger Species Survival Plan. She has had seven young, including a daughter, Soy, who still lives at the Zoo. Kerinci was named for an active volcano and the highest mountain in Sumatra.
