The lion cubs are making their grand debut to the public!
July 31, 2019 - August 1, 2019
The Naples Zoo is debuting their new lion cubs, the first time they’ve had them in 30 years! After a community supported naming contest, the cubs have been named Karoo, Ruaha, and Chobe, after three national parks in South Africa. The cubs are thriving and the introduction to their father, Masamba, went very well. Come see how cute Ruaha, Chobe, and Karoo are in person! The whole family will be on exhibit around 9 am daily and should be out through the afternoon, though the family will have access to their back den for their comfort these first few days.
