Lions, Oh My....

We revisited the Seaview Lion Park over the weekend. We had gone before and usually they have cubs you can pet... they did but they were too big for the boys to pet and interact with. So now they have new cubs. They were 8 weeks old, two girls Kyra and Amanda. Very cute! They also had three cubs that were three weeks old but were not allowed to be touched. So after the boys got to pet the cubs, Scott and I were taken down to the "cubs" that were 9 months old... they were HUGE! He estimated they were about 120-140 lbs. And they were only about 1/4-1/3 their full grown size! These were white lions. Most, if not all, white lions are in captivity and there are know to be around 350. The Seaview park has 15of them. Check out the photo collage below.. you should be able to click on the collage to see the photos larger.

I am always amazed at the things we see and are very thankful for this experience. I just hope the boys remember it... if not we will have this blog, photos and video to boost their memory!
