Menderu was born at the San Diego Zoo in 2008 and came to live at the Charles Paddock Zoo in 2009 following a recommendation from AZA's Malayan Tiger SSP (Species Survival Plan).
Menderu is an active cat who enjoys exploring his habitat and playing with some of his favorite enrichment items, such as an extra large "boomer ball".
No matter the size, your gift makes a difference! With your help the Charles Paddock Zoo will continue to flourish and provide the valuable cultural asset the Zoo is to our community.
Our precious animals need your support. This is your opportunity to friend one of our animals. Your donation is good for one year.
Volunteers are the heart of our Zoo and have always played dominant roles throughout its history. Volunteers for our education programs, events, or office support.
