Lounging Lioness at Litchfield's Wildlife World Zoo
April 17, 2010
Litchfield Arizona's Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium welcomes its first new lioness in nearly two decades. The 9-week-old female arrived recently from a facility in Ohio and seems to have settled into the new nursery. Like other large cat species, lion cubs grow in size quickly as they transition from an entirely milk diet to one with meat. In a few weeks, the still-unnamed lioness will be moved to a large outdoor display.
