My Story

Iyo has the distinction of being the last of the white tigers born at the facility before going to a no-breeding policy. In him, the combined mellowness of his father, Wicasa, and his mother Skuya have produced a tiger with one of the widest circle of friends on the compound. If there were a show about him, it would be “Everybody loves Iyo!”. Besides a dislike for being flanked by people he doesn’t know, Iyo doesn’t seem to be bothered by much. He still rather enjoys the close contact with the handlers that marked his cubhood as opposed to the eyes of many whom he might not know.

Magic Moments
Iyo will go to great lengths to keep someone he likes from leaving–even going so far as to barricade the door with his body and ‘cry’ a song to make you feel guilty enough for one more hug.
