Located inside the Central Park 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.
