Koshka was born in November 24, 2007 as one of a litter of four. He and his siblings (Malenky, Sestra, and Tuga) were given Russian names - but while doing research, we came across the word Koshka which translates into 'cat' or 'kitten.' Despite being 650 pounds, he definitely likes to act like a kitten, making him live up to the perfect name. In fact one of his favorite activities is the Big Cat Adventure, where he gets hand fed by guests and gets to show off a bit for them.
He loves water in the summer and snow in the winter. Especially when we build him snowmen that he can knock down and play with. Though most guests come out during the summer, winter is the prime time to see these animals at their best - playing and going wild in the weather that they were instinctively born to love.
