    Meet Simba! The New boy in the Town

    The Assam State Zoo cum Botanical Garden (popularly known as Guwahati Zoo) is the largest of its kind in the North East region

    Guwahati: Meet Simba! Not the one in animation in the epic Hollywood movie ‘The Lion King’ but the real one which has just started to feel homely in the city.

    A lioness in the Assam State Zoo has recently given birth to a cub in captivity and the zoo authority has christened it as ‘Simba’.  The cub is reportedly healthy and undergoing all necessary attention.

    But that’s not all.

    A tigress kept in the state zoo has also given birth to two tiger cubs.

    Sharing the news, Assam’s forest minister Parimal Suklabaidya on Wednesday tweeted: “Such a cheerful news. Glad to share with you all that our lioness and tigress have given birth to one lion cub and two tiger cubs at @assamzoo  during the lockdown period. Zoo family has named the lion cub as ‘SIMBA’. My heartiest congratulations.”

    The Assam State Zoo cum Botanical Garden (popularly known as Guwahati Zoo) is the largest of its kind in the North East region. Spread across 432 acre (175 hectare), the zoo is located in the heart of the city within the Hengrabari Reserved Forest.

    It is the home to about 895 animals, birds and reptiles representing almost 113 species of animals and birds from around the world.
