Three lion cubs born at Ridiyagama Safari Park

A nine-year-old lioness ‘Sheena’ delivered three cubs at the Ridiyagama Safari Park on Tuesday night.

Park Assistant Director’s curator wildlife officer Hemantha Samarasekera said that Sheena gave birth to four cubs in 2017 as well.

She was imported from Germany to the Dehiwala Zoo, when she was two years old and moved to the Ridiyagama Safari Park at four.

This is the fourth occasion that lionesses have delivered cubs at the Park. A lioness, ‘Sahara’ had two cubs in 2016 and in 2018, one died, he said.
