Snow Baby by cindy1701d Snow Baby by cindy1701d
This is Donovan, he is a African Lion cub from the Utica, NY zoo and is about 8 months old. I just love this little guy, as I have been taking picture of him since like July. You can see some more of his picture below.

More shots of Donovan and his family:

A lion in the snow. Pretty unusual, isn't it? Great shot, Cindy.

Yes, I guess it is. I was talking to the zoo keeper and he said that they got winter coats and there was no reason to keep them locked up all winter. He said it cost more but that they kept the building open for them and kept two big heat lamps on for them, that way if they got cold they could go warm up. :)

Well, that's nice to hear. Anyway, I think the little guy looks a little displaced in the snow, and that makes it a great shot...

I guess he does look displaced, but I think he likes the snow and he was born in this area so I guess he has to get use to it. :)

I hope you don't think that by "displaced" I meant anything bad, it's what makes this a stand-out shot...

Oh, I know you didn't mean anything bad. I guess he is sort of displaced being that his breed comes from Africa and he is in the snow. ;)

Exactly. It's just very unusual to see a lion in a snowy environment (as opposed to tigers or snow leopards, haha)

Their not out in it a lot, they can go in the building anytime they what and there are heat lamps in the building for them. So when your there your luck if you get a chance to see them outside in the snow.
