george, george, george of the jungle! georgie aka bali. i would actually like to call him bali more as that's his given name, but i was first told his name was george (sfzoo given) and that's what i'm used to, so habit. i like bali as is represents his tiger heritage, in that he was named along with his brother java after two now extinct tiger species, the bali around 1935 and the javan around 1960. i think the names are a beautiful tribute. i read that java is now at a zoo in washington and their sister (and litter mate) delta is at the san deigo zoo. they were born on 5.22.98 at the henry doorly zoo in omaha. george came to the sfzoo after a stopover in denver. george is an eleven year old male sumatran, mated with leanne and father of the cublets. while separated from mama and cubs, he was sometimes housed next to padang and they became friendly as well. they can sometimes be seen looking for each other at the window, when he is rotating the enclosure with tony.
