NEWSLINK: Tigers test cat climbing post after Hamilton Zoo revamp

The rope climber has been added to encourage tigers like Oz to climb as they would in their natural habitat.Tigers at Hamilton Zoo now have the mother of all cat poles to climb on.

Staff have spent months revamping the "tired" 2001 enclosure and it now boasts a big cat climbing post, a paddling pool, tunnels and a tweaked soundscape.

"We wanted to change it up to make it more viewable for our visitors but also exciting and still creating a habitat that tigers would want to be in," curator Catherine Nichols said.
