The zoo has 2 African Lion. They came from a zoo in Arizona the winter of 2017.
Vern and Lola are two beautiful African Lions that arrived at the zoo in February 2017. They have grown remarkably fast and Vern is quite a handsom boy. The interesting thing about the African Lions is that the male has to remain intact or in other words he can not be neutered or he will not grow a mane and will remain looking like the female does. With Vern being an intact he does spray much like male house cats do only Vern can spray 15 to20 feet. So if you see him back up to you step to one side or the other fast. Do not try to run back as he will still probably get you.
