Description: First breeding in captivity of Berber lions - Neuwied Zoological Gardens, Germany.

News: For the first time in Germany a successful breeding of Berber lions has occured, in Neuwied zoo. On presenting the two as-yet-unnamed cubs, zoo director Heinrich Klein called it "a sensational success."

The species has been considered extinct, in the wild, ever since the 1940's. The two new berber lion cubs were born in January and March, respectively. The elder cub is suckled by the mama lioness, the younger one is bottle-fed by a human foster mother.

Neuwied zoo declare they are the only zoo world wide with breedable lions. At a later date, the two cubs wll be transferred to Erfurt zoo in order to expand an international breeding program. The three grown-up animals had been transferred from a private zoo in Morocco to Neuwied only last year.
