Support for the African Lion cubs

On 31 May the Zoo's African Lion cubs, Teika and Varis, will celebrate their birthday reaching a full year of age.

No doubt, both kittens are growing! When they were a month old (on 2 July 2021), their weights were 5.5 and 6.0 kilos respectively. Now, being already near to a year of age, they have reached the weights of 74 and 101 kilos respectively (such weights were recorded on 19 April). Being now adolescents, they are already more easier to distinguish. Varis, as a young Lion male, is bigger and bulkier than his sister. (To compare, the weights of their parents, Kali and Cvanga, were 260 and 165 kilos respectively this April.)

If you'd like to help the Lion cubs to celebrate their birthday, we invite to donate EUR 20.00 from 17 May–20 June, to support their meals!

This money will be used to pay for the daily ration of both African Lion cubs, Teika and Varis.
