Lion CubThe Lion Cub with Catitude

December 19, 2017

In case you haven’t heard, we have an adorable little lion cub at the Virginia Zoo. He was born on October 28 to experienced parents Mramba and Zola. Here’s the latest video update of the little one, who already has a unique and lovable personality.

We’re asking for your help in giving this little guy a name! Name submissions for the male lion cub will be accepted from December 11, 2017, at 9 am through December 22, 2017, at Noon. Please enter a name as well as the amount you wish to donate. Each dollar donated will be counted as one (1) vote toward the submitted name.

The Virginia Zoo will donate 100 percent of the naming contest proceeds to the Pride Lion Conservation Alliance, which leads efforts in four key lion ranges, researching and protecting 20 percent of Africa’s existing wild lion population.

Submit a name HERE, and stay tuned for another cubdate coming soon!
