    Last year in November a new Asian lion male arrived from Budapest zoo, Hungary. The name of him is Aslan and he is celebrating 2 years on February 15. (the day after the Valentine´s day).

    He is now together with the park's three females; Sarla, Ishara and Chanda.

    The reason the male Binturong was putted down was because he escaped his enclousure and got in a fight with one of the clouded leopards and got too severe damages, hislife couldn´t be saved
