Welcome to Jasiri

On 19th December 2014 we were thrilled to welcome Jasiri the African lion to Dartmoor Zoo. His name means 'bold and courageous' in Swahili, a name we feel is well suited to the ongoing story of Dartmoor Zoo!

We hope that in time he and our lioness Josie will be introduced and form a pairing, becoming companions for the future.

Here you can see a video of the arrival.
