Ellen Trout Zoo Names Baby Tiger
The new lion cub at the Ellen Trout Zoo has a name! It's been a summer of births at the zoo, with several intriguing new babies born. The lion cub has been named Sango.
The city says the name has meaning - Sango is the Yoruba god of lightning and thunder.
We've got a chance to catch a sneak peak at the little lion cub this weekend, but we'll have to be on our toes.
"For one hour only on Saturday and Sunday (Aug. 25 and 26) between 11:00am and noon, he will be on exhibit in the lion habitat. One of his keepers will be available to answer questions about this wonderful little guy. So come out and meet our newest zoo resident. If it is raining, we will reschedule because we cannot take a chance he would catch cold. Hope to see you Saturday and/or Sunday at the Zoo."
