Zoo throws wedding for lions with meat cake


Bangladesh zoo keepers have thrown two lions a wedding party that included a heart-shaped meat cake in the hope of drawing much-needed visitors. Some 400 guests attended the reception laden with balloons on Wednesday for long-time resident and lioness Nova and newcomer Nabha at the Chittagong zoo.

The lion’s name was Badsha, renamed Nabha, from the Rangpur zoo was bought to stay here with the lioness Nova for the purpose of breeding. The highlight of the festivities was a 10-kilogramme cake for the couple made mainly of meat that included beef, chicken, eggs and fried liver.

Nova was born in Chittagong zoo some 11 years ago and has been living without a male partner for most of that time, until Badsha arrived two weeks ago.


The lions would remain in separate but adjacent cages for another three days to give them time to get used to one another.
