Lion Cezar, one of our first animals
Cezar belongs into the group of our first animals from a private owner, who had them from a circus but couldn't take care of them financially anymore. She lives here in a shared enclosure with his lioness Kama and their cubs Love and Arya. Cezar is very unique with his manes, which is in a shape of a heart. He is the biggest king of the Malkia Park and a great father.
Lion is the biggest predator in Africa, the males can grow up to 3 m in length from the top of their nose to the end of their tail and they can weight on average about 180-250 kg. Their roar can he heard for about 5-8 km and they can survive without water for about 3-4 days.
A century ago the lion population was approximately 200 000 individuals. Today there are less than 30 000 and 80% animals have disappeared from their original habitat.
Lions, the kings of animals have been a popular symbol of majesty and bravery for millennia. What`s happening to this iconic animal? The human factor is the main reason of decreasing of their population. Their threat in the wild are poachers, the loss of their natural habitat as well as the trophy hunters. Lions are still abused in circuses all over the world.
