Beloved Dreamworld tiger Rama passes away

Dreamworld's oldest living tiger Rama has passed away overnight.

The 19-year-old male Bengal tiger was humanely put down on Wednesday after struggling with kidney failure, as well as arthritis.

Rama has become the second tiger to pass away at Dreamworld in 2017, after sibling Sita passed away aged 18 due to kidney failure in May.

The big cat was the last remaining member of the 'Awesome Pawsome', the original four tiger cubs born at Tiger Island in 1998.
