Houston, TX — An African lion cub has been born at the Houston Zoo and Gardens and is the first cub to be born in its human space since 2010.
The cub, named Buddy, is the second cub to have been born since the zoo moved to a larger indoor space after the pandemic.
“The birth of Buddy has been a special day for all of us at the zoo and the Zoo staff,” said Dr. John Henson, the zoo’s executive director and CEO.
“We are so excited for him, and so proud of him.
It’s an honor for us to have him here with us and be part of the Houston Zoological Park.”
Buddy, the second baby born at Houston Zoo in six years, was born at 10 a.m.
The zoo is now home to 2,300 animals and the new cub will make its debut in a little over two months.
Henson said Buddy will have his own separate enclosure and will be in a cub cage for the first time.
“He’s going to be a baby lion, and we’re just excited to give him the chance to grow and learn and be a part of our family,” Henson told The Hill.
The Zoo has a baby zoo at the Zoo on the first floor of the building.
It has been in the zoo for four years.
In May, Buddy was born to a mother and cub.
The mother was also pregnant at the time and the cubs were brought to the zoo to be kept for the time being.
“Our first priority was to make sure we got everything right, so we put the cub together as soon as we had the opportunity to,” Hensonsaid.
“That cub has proven to be successful, and it has shown great health and it looks great.
It also has proven that the cub will be a good addition to our family.
The future is bright for our zoo.”
Henson added that the zoo will be doing everything in its power to keep Buddy healthy, and the staff is excited to be able to share in the baby’s success.
“There’s a lot of things we can do to ensure Buddy will be well and happy for the rest of his life,” he said.
The Houston Zoo is also working to bring in a second baby, as well as to open an animal sanctuary for another animal.
Henson said that the animals have been living in a special area of the zoo with a separate enclosure for the cub, and they are excited to see Buddy in the enclosure and on the move.
The Texas Zoo was built by the Houston-based George C. Marshall Company, and has a long history of being a zoo for animals, including the animals at the Austin Zoo and in the Austin Botanical Garden.
The George C Marshall Company opened the zoo in 1900, and a large part of that history is thanks to the work of animal lovers like Sarah Latham.
She was the first to work at the Texas Zoo and the Houston Gardens.
“I was in a zoo and I saw the baby giraffe,” Latham told The Daily Beast in 2005.
“It was like, ‘What’s this?’
It was just a baby giraffes life, and I’m just so grateful for the little girl that helped us make the first zoo in the world,” Lascay told The Guardian in 2010.
Lascail is a retired zookeeper who spent more than 40 years at the George C Mason Company, which also includes the Zoo and Houston Zoo.
Latham was one of the founders of the George M. Marshall Center for the Conservation of African Elephants in Texas and worked there until her death in 2012.
“She was a woman of passion, who cared deeply for the animals, and she cared deeply about the environment,” Liscay told the New York Times in 2015.
“At the end of the day, I think that’s what makes the Zoo great, that it is a place where the animals come to live in a beautiful environment, and then to work on that environment.
And the world can benefit from the knowledge that the elephants have to live the way that they do.”
Lascate’s husband, George C, was also one of Houston Zoo’s first managers.
“My wife and I worked very closely with Sarah Lascays husband, G.C. Marshall, and his team to create a safe, nurturing and caring environment for all the animals in the Houston Zoos animal sanctuary,” the zoo said in a statement.
“Sarah Lascall was a pioneer and a great leader.
Her dedication to her job and to the animals who worked there, made it a priority to create the most humane, ethical, and caring sanctuary in the city of Houston.”
The Houston zoo opened its doors to the public in 1887.
It was the second largest zoo in Texas, and was one the first zoos in the country to offer zoological research and
