The lion cubs at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore born in October have a new playmate. A third cub arrived recently from Zoo Miami to live with them.
The new lion cub will be raised with the brother and sister cub born at the Maryland Zoo. The young female cub, named Zuri, was part of an original litter of three (two males and one female) that were born at Zoo Miami on Sept. 24. Following the death of the first male due to apparent maternal neglect, the remaining two were pulled for hand rearing. Unfortunately, the second male died late last month.
