      The lion enclosure was also home to cheetah when I visited. This is behind the snow leopards right?
    • Maguari
      Yup. The lioness in this exhibit had been moved fairly recently - there was a sign on the lion enclosure down by the Iberian Wolves/hyaenas saying where she'd gone to.

      yes when i visited quite a number of years ago it was home to a breeding pair of ratels , and the enclosure which now holds a lion held some snowleopards , its a shame they put a species as common as a meerkat in that enclosure which used to be for the ratels , dont get me wrong meerkats are endearing animals but they are too be seen in almost every zoological garden

      Did you notice if the male Lion in here has been castrated- has it lost its mane? I'm rather in the dark about what their policy is with these Lions at present.
    • Maguari
      Didn't notice, I'm afraid. Sorry!

      Where is this lion enclosure?
      Is it down by the bottom of the Park with the other Lions next to the Bengal Tigers Dheli and Calcutta?
      Thanks
    • Maguari
      No - up at the top behind the Snow Leopard enclosure.
    • Mike11
      Thanks Maguari has it only just started housing Lions then?
    • Maguari
      The current lioness has certainly only just taken up residence - there was a sign on her old exhibit (down by the hyaenas) saying that she'd been moved here.
