Albus, a 4-month-old hybrid tiger, will be spending the season warming the hearts of visitors at the Forest Park Zoo.
"We're very excited to have Albus as a temporary part of our family," board president Christian Gainer said. "He's sure to bring a lot of excitement and smiles to the zoo this year."
Albus will be one of the main features at the Baby Days event Saturday at 11 a.m.
