The lone surviving lion cub at Zoo Miami has been transferred to a zoo in Baltimore.
Zoo Miami has sent its lone surviving lion cub North in the hopes she’ll have a better life.
The three-month old critter was sent to Maryland Zoo in Baltimore to be hand-raised alongside two other cubs of similar age, Zoo Miami announced Tuesday.
She is the only survivor of a three-cub litter born at Zoo Miami on Sept. 24. Their birth was a momentous occasion: they were the first lions born at the zoo in its 33-year history.
The two male cubs died of apparent maternal neglect and from what may have been a congenital condition, according to the zoo.
