Sunday was an exciting day. A commercial shoot was scheduled several hours north in an area that closely resembled the Serengeti plains of Africa. And just what animals do you think were stars for this African setting? LIONS, of course!! Here are two of the actors for the shoot: Leo & Lily, two special 12 week old Barbary Lions flown in from our partners out east. They were quite a handfull at this age, rough & tumble non-stop for hours. This was obviously the best part of my day!
As fellow animal lovers, we are always looking for new and inventive ways to help animals recover quickly from injuries. It is great to share stories and trial with either other to make sure we are all up to date on the latest and greatest ways to help our beloved animals.
Check out this video on a lion cubs that has a unique way to recover from a leg injury.
After Savannah made a quick appearance on The Jay Leno Show, she decided to give all of us at Zoofari a very special show of our own. Savannah believed she was acrobatic enough to climb two branches in her enclosure and… you know what happens next.
The Tonight Show on February 6th with Dave Salmoni of Animal Planet went great! The lion, leopard, and bison were all so good and of course Peru, our viscacha was a big hit! Watch it Now on the Jay Leno Tonight Show Website. You better hurray up because it will disappear on the 24th of February.
On Thursday a special guest arrived at the Wildlife Center in Bonsall. Savanna, a 5 month old lioness made herself at home in Siri‘s exhibit, while Siri kept the barn animals company. Savanna came to Wild Wonders for a special TV appearance in Los Angeles. She flew all the way to San Diego from a small town just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She makes her home in Pennsylvania at the Wild World of Animals, Wild life Center, who specialize in educational animal presentations as does Wild Wonders Inc.
Savanna quickly fell in love with the weather and was considering becoming a Chargers fan, but after yesterday’s display I am sure she has changed her mind.
Savanna returned home to Pittsburgh safe and sound on Friday afternoon. Her overnight stay was certainly the buzz of the weekend around our wildlife center. Siri really enjoyed all the new smells in her home and she spent all day exploring and remarking her space.
It was a great treat to have such a special guest. Thanks to everyone who made it happen.
