Trio begin new chapter

August 28, 2014



THESE lion cubs have made their debut at the Johannesburg Zoo, heralding the zoo's new generation of lions, which haven't bred there in five years.

Agnes Maluleke, who is responsible for the management of the big cats at the zoo, says the new additions are exciting.

Male white lion Letaba and his sisters Sabi and Jubba were born in April at a private game farm. They arrived at the zoo in July and were cared for in quarantine until recently. Letaba is the only sibling with a rare white coat inherited from his parents' recessive genes.

The zoo says it has seven adult lions that have all surpassed their natural life expectancy.|- Sapa-AP
