Parents, Here Are The Viewing Times For The New Lion Cubs
Parents! It is going to be a very, very nice weekend here in Western New York and it seems like the perfect time to come see the new lion cubs at the Buffalo Zoo!
AS OF TODAY, YOU CAN GO SEE THE BABY LIONS EVERYDAY FROM 10 AM TO 1 PM.
The Buffalo Zoo is open every day from 10 in the morning until 4 pm. The pair of cubs are kids to mother Lusaka and father Tiberius and were born on May 7. They make their debut today at the Buffalo Zoo. The Buffalo Zoo asks that you buy your tickets still online to reserve your spot and you can do so here. There is no timed session or anything like that you can stay as long as the zoo is open.
BUT WHAT ARE THEIR NAMES?!
There was a contest held and for a dollar people could vote on the name options that were already pre-determined. All of the money that was generated from the voting went to benefit the Buffalo Zoo and the Association of Zoos & Aquariums Lion SAFE (Saving
Animals From Extinction) Program to aid in African lion conservation efforts. What are the names of the new lion cubs at the Buffalo Zoo?
'The winning name for the boy, Khari, which means "king-like" in Swahili, received 957 votes. While the winning name for the girl, Zahra, means "flower" in Swahili and received 696 votes", according to the press release. Just a reminder though, that even if the lions are out in their habitat, that does not always mean they are going to be visible.
