Oh my word, look how big our two boys are already!! Stunning!
Truly inspirational. Just perfect.
Wow! What a pair of cool dudes! Its so great to see them enjoying their new lives thanks to all the tireless efforts of those involved in their rescue.
As always , thank you for the updates! They are looking fabulous! And thanks to all, they will be safe.
So nice to see George and Yame, they have grown so much since I saw them the week they arrived at Kevin's last October. Thank you for the update!
Fantastic to see how healthy and happy they look now - *Brotherly Love* 😊
Beautiful boys. So happy they are at such a great place to live. Amazing and rewarding work that you all do for our worlds most beautiful and mighty animal. Lion killings need to stop the king of beasts is truely a king and deserves to live the life of one. Thank you for all you do its amazing.
SPLENDID !! These 2 boys give us hope for 3 lion cubs ( 2 female, 1 male) in Addo Elephant Park, age 12 weeks. The mother Gina died in early December (possibly snake bite) and the cubs were left to fend for themselves. Everyone was looking and hoping for a sighting but chances seemed slim 4 weeks later. Then suddenly they were spotted - in rather poor condition ! They were darted and taken in to receive vet care and help. They will be kept in an undisclosed enclosure for 6 months and then hopefully released back into the wild :-) Resilient little babies these lions ! :-)
So wonderful to hear that they have been found and getting the love and attention they deserve. Each one of our lost Cubs need to be found, if possible, and allowed to be there for their brothers and sisters and to strengthen the future for what still awaits them ahead. Good work! Cachspain
Hola CJ & Luis, look at your boys! You must be so proud of them! Nobody will ever forget that Yame and George would not be here if it were not for you both. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
I was interested in a comment you made Chris about the the cub's retina having to be checked before a cataract operation. As a human I had cataracts removed and plastic lenses implanted but the retina never featured. Is it different with lions?
I will try to answer that question for you. Sometimes "when and if" surgery is necessary depends on the development of the retina and the eye itself. The eye usually hasn't grown enough until the first year. Specialists will soon be determining whether George's eyes are improving on their own or if and when he will need surgery. We are all keeping our fingers crossed that this is something that he will eventually grow out of. Let's say our prayers. Best CJ. Cachspain
That's very interesting - thanks for your reply ! Yes let's pray he outgrows the problem ! There's always hope !!
Thanks CJ for responding to Barbara. Actually, it was Bev who spoke to Dr Venter the eye surgeon who has done many eye operations on lion, rhino and other species. she could not remember all the technical detail he explained to her.
Oh, these 2 beautiful, precious boys are looking amazing - they look so HAPPY!! Thank you, Kevin and every one of your special people.
They have grown so quickly! I'm so glad they were saved and they can live out the rest of their lives in peace. :) thank you.
LOVE the updates on these guys! Thanks to all. Keep them coming!
So many emotions when you see how far these two gorgeous boys have come... So proud of all that helped rescue them... Thank you for the updates.. We can never thank You all enough for being true Angels.. Love and blessings to you all...
Those two boys look like they are loving life at the sanctuary. So good to see them exploring and being with each other. Cant wait to see them myself!
