It's been a white Christmas here at Hunter Valley Zoo.

Meet our beautiful twin white lions, these lions arrived from Darling Downs Zoo in QLD in December 2016 and have their own huge exhibit next to the older pride of African Lions. They are definitely a handful at the age of 2 and will have our lion keepers busy!

Kovu

Only 2 years old, Kovu meaning scar is already longer and taller than our Tawny African Lion, Bruiser who is 18 years old.

Nala

Nala is also only 2 years old, her name means gift and she is certainly winning everyone's hearts with her affectionate personality.
