Lions join St. Louis Zoo as part of Species Survival Program

05/25/2007

Two 17-month-old African lions — a brother and sister — are the newest residents of Big Cat Country at the St. Louis Zoo.

Born at the Basel Zoo in Switzerland, the two young lions are unrelated to any lions in North American zoos and are important to future breeding programs, according to the Zoo. Their move to St. Louis was recommended by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ Lion Species Survival Program.
