And one, and two, and three lion cubs at the Safari Zoo Domaine de Thoiry !


It was on March 24th of this year they :  three adorable baby lions  of Africa were born in the Safari Zoo Domain of Thoiry and have just just made their first exit!

First steps

Sheltered in an special room with their mother until  June 9th, three small “big cats” grew up serenely and are now  old enough to discover the outside world! Both females and their brother are the descendants of Akele, 5,5-year-old male, and of Nyassa, 3 years old. Although it is its first litter, Nyassa takes care of it perfectly well

At the age of one and a half month, while lion cubs began to be less dependent on their mother and before they do not become too powerful, the team of the park was able to proceed to their sexing and to their puçage. This last manipulation consists in inserting under the skin a chip containing all the medical and genetic information of each of them. It is an important stage because, unless a health problem, it is the unique moment when they will have been in direct contact with the Man.

In their natural environment, the lions of Africa undergo more and more the anthropological pressure.

This weekend, the three scions of Nyassa made their first exit in front of the visitors. They took up a new space, where they can be from now on observed throughout the season. From now on, two groups of lions can be observed by the public.

From this week, the team makes an appointment with the Internet users on the Facebook of the park (@zoothoiry) to choose the first names of youngs!

A new date in a few weeks, the lions of the Safari Zoo Domain of Thoiry will not stop surprising you … And one, and two, and three lion cubs at the Safari Zoo Domain of Thoiry!
