      Monarto Zoo - Largest Lion Display in Australia

      MONARTO Zoo has welcomed two more lion cubs to its ever-growing brood - making its pride Australia's largest. Zoos SA announced this morning that the yet-to-be-named cubs - a male and female - had been born on June 18 to mum Kiamba.
      They join three other cubs born on April 24 .

      Senior carnivore keeper Claire Geister said the zoo had been "thrilled'' to welcome the two cubs to the Monarto Zoo family last month.
      ``It's going to be absolutely amazing to see five cubs only eight weeks apart playing together soon - just like a pride in Africa would look,'' she said.
      ``Kiamba's two cubs are currently housed in an off-limits area of the lion exhibit.''
      ``It's hoped we'll be able to reunite the entire Monarto Zoo lioness pride after the cubs' six-week vet check.''
      Monarto Zoo visitors have the opportunity to see the three older cubs and the female pride every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.
      The zoo also is giving the public the chance to help name its five new cubs - two males and three females.
      Each submitted name should be of African descent and have a special meaning.
      To submit a suggestion head to the Monarto Zoo website .

      We're taking the kids next Thursday. Hope they don't want to bring one home with them - the dog will never stand for it...
