Birmingham Zoo Breeds More Lions for Caged Life

Birmingham Zoo Breeds More Lions for Caged Life

The Birmingham Zoo is home to five 12-week-old lion cubs that will join their parents in the predator hall Labor Day weekend. Special events for the animals and visitors are planned around the cubs and their arrival to the exhibit. They were born May 25 to their mother, Akili and Kwanzaa, the zoo’s male lion. Lion litters can range from a single cub to four, but two is the norm. Zoo officials are working to see if the five-cub litter is the largest in an American zoo. Three of the cubs play in some soft, green grass. (The Birmingham News/Jeff Roberts)
