Claw Island was home to tigers, and was part of the Congo section of the park. An article in 1980 reported there were 12 Bengal tigers, and they could be seen in the habitat playing on the rocks, or cooling off by taking a swim or sitting beneath the waterfall.

The new habitat in Jungala, Tiger Trails, is located in roughly the same spot.
