TORONTO ZOO ANNOUNCES HOPEFUL PREGNANCY OF ENDANGERED AMUR TIGER

Your Toronto Zoo is excited to announce that female Amur tiger Mazyria, affectionately known to Zoo staff and volunteers as “Mazy”, is believed to be pregnant. Hormone levels suggest that she is in the final stages of pregnancy; however, there is still the possibility that this is a pseudopregnancy (all of the signs of pregnancy, but without any babies). Mazyria, born at Granby Zoo in 2007, was introduced to male tiger Vasili, born at Calgary Zoo in 2012, this past January. Hormone monitoring confirmed they successfully bred January 17 and 18. Amur tiger pregnancies can range from 93 to 112 days in length, making it difficult to pinpoint a due date.
