‘King-of-the-jungle-sized’ birthday party thrown for 1-year-old lion cubs at West Mids Safari Park

West Midlands Safari Park has celebrated seven of its lion cubs turning 1 this year.

Staff at the Worcestershire attraction threw a ‘king-of-the-jungle-sized' party for the miniature ‘big cats’ - who were born on 27 August and 17 September last year. 

Keepers made several animal-themed gift boxes filled with presents for the young lions.

The cubs, made up of five boys and two girls, spent the day feasting and playing with the 'roar-some' treats.

They were even joined by some of the reserve’s adult African lions.

The two litters of cubs were born to ten-year-old female Scar, and seven-year-old female Amber, within three weeks of each other last summer.

The male cubs are expected to grow their distinctive manes when they turn two-years-old.
