Lion Update 12-05-11

Zoo Keepers have separated male lion “Shombay” from female lion “Kaya” and the three lion cubs again.  The lions were getting along fine, but Keepers witnessed sooner-than-expected breeding behavior between Shombay and Kaya, and we’re not prepared for any more cubs just yet.  We’re exploring our options, but wanted our guests to know that for the time being the lions will not all be on exhibit together…although Kaya and the youngsters will continue to be on exhibit together daily.
