Nestor, the Lion cub born at Belgium’s Antwerp Zoo on August 29, loves to play. His favorite toy? Mom!
This energetic six-month-old cub has been featured several times on ZooBorns, from his first days on exhibit, playing in water, and enjoying the snow. Now Nestor is honing his hunting skills through play.
Africa’s wild Lions are in decline. Recent studies suggest that fewer than 30,000 Lions survive on the continent. Their numbers have dropped due to habitat loss and encroachment of human activity.
