On September 22, 2016, Lima´s lion cub named Chiclayanita was finally put in her home in the Lima zoo, Parque de las Leyendas.

The cub´s name, Chiclayanita, is the city where her mother was originally rescued from a circus that mistreated its animals.

Chiclayanita was born on June 29th, just a few months ago, to a lion named ´´Bonita.´´ She has grown a lot over the past months, now weighing a total of 9 kilograms.

Over the past months, the cub has been kept under the supervision of zoo officials in a separate location, where she could grow a bit before living in the zoo´s lion area.

Seeing that she was ready to enter the lion´s enclosure, her caregivers released her into the main lion´s area of Parque de las Leyendas.

Zoo visitors were ecstatic to see the cute lion cub out and about, exploring her new home with her mom.
