Hamerton Zoo Park has confirmed that the tiger involved in the death of keeper Rosa King was a male Malayan tiger.

According to the World Wildlife Fund Malayan tigers are "critically endangered" with a population of 250-340 left in the wild.

They are found only on the Malay Peninsula and in the southern tip of Thailand.

Their Latin name - Panthera tigris jacksoni - honors Peter Jackson, the famous tiger conservationist.
