:hmz: :hmz:

The gestation or pregnancy period for a female lion is about 105 - 110 days..............so you might just make it in time :wink:

We saw them on the 4th of November so your visit should be right on time to be present during birth. Now to convince the lioness that she has to come show the cubs to the forumites!! You better bring some cigars!!! :lol: :lol:
