I thought I’d just send through a few photos of George and Yame for everyone to see how big and beautiful they are now. As I'm sure you know, they will be turning 2 in April, and are really starting to look like big lions.
Their manes are coming in nicely (even George has a beautiful mane, though not as big as his brothers just yet). George is also still doing VERY well on his current supplement regime, and will be heading off to the vet again in March for his follow-up x-rays to determine the changes in bone growth and density.
They still enjoy their weekly outings into the reserve, and Yame, in the wetter weather has taken to puddle jumping to pass the time. No matter how small it is, he simply can’t resist. He then proceeds to jump all over George or us, covering us in mud from head to toe.
They have spent the last 2 months at the main sanctuary with our big lions, and have since started to attempt to roar. It’s really sweet, and soft, but Im sure they’ll have found their voices in no time.
Other than that things are pretty much the same, and they have settled into the sanctuary very well. The boys are used to their routine, and are thriving. I will write again soon with any other news on the boys.
