A pair of African lions came to Minsk Zoo from Tashkent. The animals came by exchange: racoons, barn-owls, black-tailed pythons and gnawing animals went to Uzbekistan from Minsk. The lion cubs named Nika and Arthur are 1.5 yeas old. Toys were prepared for the newcomers in the constrain – rubber balls and tires. The little lions have a special interest in them.
