The first lion cub born at the Fort Worth Zoo since 2015
FORT WORTH, Texas – The Fort Worth Zoo is proud to announce the birth of a male lion cub; the first since 2015. The cub was born on Oct. 20, 2023 at 5:37 p.m. to mother Saba and father Jabulani. This is Saba’s first cub, so the name Moja (mow-jah), Swahili for the number “one,” seemed fitting. For the last few months, Moja has been behind the scenes growing and bonding with Mom, while keepers have kept a close eye on his development and wellbeing.
