Halloween occasion marks unofficial debut of male lion cub "Sango"
Zoo Plans Squash Squish with Elephants at 11:30 on Oct. 31
Halloween came a day early for Denver Zoo lion cubs Sango and Sabi. The two cubs pounced on a pumpkin in the primary yard of the zoo's Predator Ridge exhibit. This was the first time many guests have seen Sango, a 1-year-old male who arrived from Lufkin, Texas' Ellen Trout Zoo in July. He spent the last few months behind-the-scenes clearing a mandatory quarantine period, growing accustom to his new surroundings and getting to know his new mate, Sabi. Visitors can now see them both in Predator Ridge, weather permitting.
