More exciting baby news at Monarto Zoo... one of our female lions, Kiamba, gave birth to a cub on Tuesday, 3 May. Mum and baby are doing well, they will be off-exhibit for awhile but stay tuned for regular updates and photos (these two photos were taken when the cub was only one day old!)

That's wonderful news - look forward to seeing them in the near future :)

This is just so wonderful! What wouold we do without the dedicated staff at the Zoos in preserving these threatened animal species. And you do your bit too, in publishing these fantastic photos. Bravo.

Great to see Kiamba is a mother. One of my favourite memories is of watching her at Adelaide Zoo, prying her father Maalo's mouth open & inspecting inside. What a great dad he was! I hope all goes well

I visited Monarto on April 21st and was thrilled to feed a gifaffe,thank you for that experience.
I returned home to Perth by the time this little one was born so I will have to come again soon
