By submitting and voting on cub names, you’ll be helping to save lions in Africa. “Now is your chance to name the cub and help to secure a future for all lions,” said Greg Bockheim, Executive Director of the Virginia Zoo. The cub, who was born late October, is now six weeks old and weighs approximately 12 pounds. He climbs in and out of his nest box, chases mom’s tail, and has been exploring his enclosure. The contest begins Monday, December 11 at 9 am and concludes Friday, December 22 at Noon.
