Coming from the Woodland Park Zoo, the companions of six years were introduced to their new exhibit at the L.A. Zoo for the first time on Tuesday, March 25 and are getting acclimated to their surroundings. The L.A. Zoo has worked hard to get ready for the new lion pair, making several renovations to the lion habitat and concentrating its marketing efforts toward announcing the new power couple in town. Zoo guests have also been eagerly anticipating the powerful roar that can be heard throughout the park when there are lions in the Zoo. “Guests are always asking us where the lions are,” said Jennie Becker, Curator of Mammals at the Los Angeles Zoo. “We’re very happy this pair became available, and we think people are going to be excited that we are able to have lions in the Zoo again. Hubert and Kalisa seem to be very comfortable so far and really are a magnificent sight.”
