Male Lion Cubs to Depart Soon for Their New Homes! 11-30-12

lion cubsCan you believe the Zoo’s African lion “cubs,” born in July of 2011, have gotten this big?  Male “Abuto,” pictured here with his brother “Ayotunde,” will be moving to the Zoo’s health center on Monday to start crate training for his transfer to Colorado’s Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in late December or early January.  Ayotunde will follow shortly–he’s going to the Caldwell Zoo in Texas.  We’ll sure miss these guys, but we’re excited for their opportunity to start new families at other AZA accredited Zoos!
