Jerusalem’s Newest Lion Is Swedish

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

A new Asiatic Lion from a zoo in Sweden made his first public appearance at the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo on January 30, 2014.

He was a bit confused after the long travel and a little shocked by the Jerusalem sun. You don’t get much of that in Sweden.



Back in December 2013, the Asian lion exhibit became empty, after Leider, the male the lion, had passed away of old age, and Ilania, the female, was experiencing health problems.

Now Jerusalem once again has a male lion, and he’s gorgeous.

Jerusalem Zoo Prepares to Receive Israel’s Newest Oleh

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

A new and rare Asiatic lion is to land at Ben Gurion Airport on a flight from Sweden Thursday night and will take up lodgings at the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, taking the place of the male lion that died last summer at the age of 16.

The newcomer, named Gir, is aged 2 and will join the zoo’s resident lioness Ileniya, who is 16 years old.

Zookeepers said they will make sure the youngster and the older female appear ready to get along with each other before letting them roam in the same den.
