Monkeying about with Lions

I knew that London Zoo had two new Asian lion cubs, but when I was there with my class last month, they were too young to be allowed out. When my neighbour told me on Sunday that she had just been with her grandchildren, and the cubs were out, I knew I would have to go again.

This red ruffed lemur is new. What a handsome creature.

The squirrel monkeys are always enchanting.

The lion cubs are now two months old and full of confidence. This was the first time their father had been allowed to meet them face to face.

Have you ever seen a mother more protective, vigilant, loving and proud?

I recommend watching in full screen.

I used to have a toy spider monkey when I was little, so they always have a place in my heart...I still do have a lion cub teddy, so I guess you know which video I enjoyed most :-)
