The lion exhibit is open! Our zookeepers want you to know that while the lions have access to their exhibits, they are a bit shy and unsure about their new surroundings and may, or may not venture out. Perhaps you’ll get to sneak a peek, but please be patient and polite if you don’t.  Know that it won’t be long before you’ll get to see our magnificent new lions lounging comfortably in their new home in Wild Africa!
