New Addition At London Zoo

London Zoo has got a new addition, a tiger called Jae-Jae.

The male Sumatran tiger has travelled almost 4,000 miles to meet his new mate, a female tiger called Melati who was transported here last month.

Jae-Jae was flown in to London from Ohio earlier this week.

The zoo is hoping to breed the tigers as part of a conservation programme, there are only around 600 Sumatran tigers left in the world.

The pair will live in a new enclosure called Tiger Territory, which is due to be finished next year.
