Hati the tiger gets a root canal at Zoo Miami

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A group of doctors got to the root of a problem to help a tiger at Zoo Miami restore his roar.
“Hati,” an endangered Malayan tiger, had a toothache that would make even the kindest tiger upset. The Malayan tiger is classified as endangered, they can only be found on the Malay Peninsula and there is estimated to be about 1,000 of them left

Hati was born at the Fort Worth Zoo and arrived at Zoo Miami in November of 2004 as part of a planned captive breeding program.

Now, 10 years later, Hati has received a top of the line root canal on his lower right canine tooth after zookeepers noticed that he had fractured it in an unknown manner.
