name: lion
Monarto Zoo is proud to announce the arrival of a beautiful African Lion cub
born at 4pm on May 3.


Carnivore Keeper Claire Geister said the cub looks strong and healthy and its mother, Kiamba is doing a marvellous job caring for it. “The cub was the only one in the litter and has been developing well over the past few weeks, venturing outside the den and building in confidence daily,” Ms Geister said. “We are counting down to the cub’s health check as this will also be the day that we can confirm if it is a male or female,” she said.

Kiamba is seven years old and came from Adelaide Zoo. Leroy, the cub’s father, is ten years old and came to Monarto Zoo via Mogo Zoo in NSW. He has four females in his pride. Kiamba and Leroy are a recommended breeding pair within the region, so this cub and any subsequent young will benefit from the strong genetic diversity their match provides.

Zoos South Australia CEO, Prof Chris West said African lions in the wild are in decline as a result of habitat loss, human conflict and disease from domestic animals. There are less than 20,000 in the wild today whereas in the 1960s there were 250,000. “We are celebrating the arrival of a single lion cub who will act as an ambassador of its species to people in Australia. We want people to help us secure a future for wild lions in Africa,” Prof West said.

To celebrate the arrival of the cub we are giving the public the chance to name it through eBay. All money raised with go to Zoos SA conservation programs.

The winning bidder will submit names for the Lion cub, with the final name to be decided at Zoos SA's discretion. Names should be consistent with current Lion pride at Monarto Zoo. No inappropriate names will be considered. The winning bidder will also receive a gift voucher for two people to participate in the ‘Lions at Bedtime’ experience at Monarto Zoo. Date of visit and all travel arrangements to Monarto Zoo will be at the winning bidders expense. This auction prize cannot be transferred or resold and is not redeemable for cash.
