Cubs & Curriculum

After 18 years, the Philadelphia Zoo proudly announces the arrival of four new lion cubs. The cubs have different birthdates! Two cubs were born on June 25, and two cubs were born on June 26. This is the first litter for female Tajiri and male Makini.

They will make their public debut in September after we have “cub-proofed” their exhibit!

Your students can be among the first to see our new lion cubs during a fall field trip. To reserve your field trip, please call 215-243-5235.
