Michael Jackson's new avatar is now living in a privately owned Malaysian zoo.
J. Siva Priyan, the caretaker and animal trainer of the zoo, has decided to name one of the five newborn tiger cubs after the late king of pop.
The zoo recently welcomed the five tiger cubs - two males and three females.
The Star Online quoted him as saying: 'I thought Michael Jackson would be a fitting name for one of the male cubs...for the rest, I have yet to decide.'
Priyan said the zoo was opened 16 years ago and had successfully bred over 50 tigers.
The trainer added that the latest brood was born after a successful mating between tigers Putra and Kasih, who had been at the zoo for more than a decade.
