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.
