Desert lion Suria


The lioness Suria

Suria belongs to the group of the first animals of the Malkia Park and she is the mother of Adelle and Diego. Wild cats don't belong into the hands of private owners since their care is very demanding, not only financially but also because the animal care is very particular and difficult. These wild cats should not serve as house pets for short-term entertainment.

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.

For the ADOPTION DONATION for Suria we would like to thank:
