the Lions have over 50 years been one of the Givskud zoo's biggest attractions, and the park has now welcomed a new litter løveunger welcome, who can continue the tradition.
One of the park's løvinder've got four kids, and this is the first time in a good 2.5 years, that it occurs within the park's walls.
It writes the Givskud Zoo in a press release.
- We are superglade for it. We have long been working on a major reshuffle and expansion of the flock, so these cubs are the important both for our work in the park and for the general international breeding across wildlife parks and zoos, says director Richard Østerballe in the press release.
He says that the two females and two males slowly is starting to discover the staldrum, where they are alone with the mother.

It lasts a while yet before they are ready to be a part of the other løveflok and get out in the plant, as the park's guests can drive through in the car.
- It is always a balancing act to determine when kids are ready for it. They must be able to be included in the pack, and then they must be able to move around with the mother and keep his distance from cars, says Richard Østerballe in the press release and adds:
- however, It has not been a problem before, so we expect that neither in this place. Here make the keepers a continuous assessment.
It is no coincidence that the kids at the moment are alone with their mother. It is common for løvinder to search away from their flock, when they will give birth to offspring, and this instinct has the park tried to accommodate by giving the lioness her own staldrum.
the Director expects, however, that the fry are large enough to be closed out in the plant 'at the start of the high season'.
