World Lion Day 2017

The Asiatic lion pride at ZSL London Zoo had something huge to celebrate on World Lion Day in August 2017: a giant Earth commemorating three years of support from Liontrust.

The metre-wide boomer ball, specially designed for large, strong, animals to play with, was scented with the pride’s favourite aromatic herbs and spices. According to Zookeeper Lucy Reed: “Scenting the ball encourages our pride to use their incredible sense of smell to track it through their territory, as they would with prey, before using their sharp claws to tear into it – acting as a natural manicure for our lionesses.”
