A new tiger's arrived at Marwell Wildlife near Winchester.

The female called Kushka has been brought in on loan.

The 14-year-old will keep their tiger Milla company until she's joined by a new male tiger.

After travelling from Paradise Wildlife Park last Wednesday Kushka was seen by the public over the weekend.

The two females have welcomed each other's company and have settled in well living together.

John Pullen, Curator of Mammals at Marwell says: "Kushka has settled in really well. She is a very steady cat and has been keen to explore her new outdoor area. She has met Milla up close and they seem very happy together."
