Lion pride update! 🦁

As many of you know, last week the Topeka Zoo carnivore team was able to successfully allow Tatu and lioness Asante to begin sharing their yard together. After a brief altercation of Asante showing she’s going to be the boss, the two have now become companions. Both now actively choose to be around each other as much as possible.

We do want to let the public know that at age 19, Asante is geriatric and has been showing the signs of her age. She has been diagnosed with arthritis and kidney disease (these diagnoses were made by our veterinarian Dr. Llizo in years prior). The Zoo veterinary and carnivore teams have been providing her the necessary care and treatment to ensure she is comfortable and healthy as she can be.

Since Asante has to be inside to receive treatment, and both lions frequently choose to be in the same space, lions may or may not be visible during your visit.

We thank everyone for their continued support during the lion introduction process! 🦁
