Brilliant things: Lions at Wellington Zoo

I love how easy it is to get to Wellington Zoo. While it isn’t quite an inner city, it’s probably only a 15 minute drive from the CBD. Those living at the edges of the Zoo apparently can hear the lions roar! This is one of the two male lions at Wellington Zoo (I can’t tell the difference between Malik and Zulu!!). I find it fascinating to visit the lion habitat when I’m at the zoo. Mostly because they pretty much behave like my cat, but much bigger. Also, it was very educational doing the lion encounter (but not a close encounter) to learn about the conservation efforts and also how Wellington Zoo treats their lions.
