Gift of Samuel F.B. Morse (1791-1872), an American artist and inventor and other residents
Located inside the Wildlife Conservation Center
just beyond the Intelligence Garden's entrance to the Leaping Frog Cafe
is the statue, Tigress & Cubs.
A large tigress nurtures her cubs while c lutching her prey, a peacock, in her fangs.
Originally, this sculpture was hardly ever noticed due to its isolated location within the Park.
In 1934, it was moved to the Zoo, where today children and visitors alike admire its presence.
