St. Louis (KSDK) - There was a different type of tiger at the Saint Louis Zoo Thursday.
Mizzou mascot Truman was there entertaining crowds.
He was joined by the university's athletic director, Mike Aden.
They were on-hand to announce a new partnership between the zoo and the university's "Tigers for Tigers." The program helps address problems facing the tiger population around the world.
To celebrate the partnership, the tigers at the zoo got some new toys, inspired by some of Mizzou's SEC rivals.
