WOW Brilliant photo of Mohan CC, he does look one very proud handsome boy, and it's lovely to see them both together.

I visited the Zoo about ten days ago; I asked the keeper if there are any baby news, and he told that Mohan and Kalyana had mated two weeks earlier...
Now everyone keep your fingers crossed!

CC that's brilliant news and my fingers are definitely crossed    wouldn't it just be fantastic if they had little cubs, i'm so pleased you asked the keeper, please let us know anymore news when you get it.

I was going to ask if you had a nice time but that's a rather silly question because i'm sure you did, how could you not have a great time.

Hope your ok and keeping well.

Littlewid, I am ok and well, thanks for asking!  Very Happy

You are right: I always have a great time at the zoo!

Remember I told how Mohan hated one of the keepers... This time he was lying at some distance from the fence when the keeper walked by. It was so fun to see Mohan's eyes following the keeper's every move. It looked like he could have attacked at any moment, but he knew he could not get through the fence so he stayed still where he was, probably thinking "One of these days..."

Hi CC
Glad you are keeping well, that's good to hear and from the picture of Mohan, he looks pretty much ok as well, he is such a handsome fellow  I love you  that little story had me smiling, I wonder why he has a dislike of that keeper? i'm sure he has done nothing to upset Mohan, maybe it's just a feeling Mohan has but more probable that Mohan see's him as the one who is keeping him in his pen rather than freedom........who know's for sure but I bet the keeper is glad Mohan is behind bars......or else  affraid 

Thanks for that lovely picture CC, it's given me a smile today  Very Happy

WS, I am sorry to hear that you have not been well  Crying or Very sad and happy if I can cheer you up a bit!

It happened years ago that Mohan was once bullying the lioness, and the keeper then yelled at him to make him stop. Mohan did not like it at all, and he has hated the keeper ever since...  Laughing

WS get well soon!  Hugs

Ooooh good news CC that there could be more babies on the way  cheers 

Love that picture of Mohan (very handsome boy) he's definitely focussed on the keeper there - does make you wonder why he doesn't like him doesn't it  scratch

  That's wonderful news CC, lets hope that Kalyana is pregnant and there will soon be some little cubs. Lots of excitement with Kalyana hopefully being pregnant and Tamur's arrival. Good news for the Lions and Tigers    looking forward to updates on Kalyana

affraid  Are you kidding CC, you could never bore us with these wonderful photo's we adore them, so don't you dare stop  Very Happy 

Mohan looks anything but big and scary, he looks a real pussy cat there and if it was safe, wouldn't you just love to cuddle into that mane of his, it's gorgeous, he looks so contented with his lot doesn't he. Such a handsome fellow.

Kalyana is beautiful and i'm wondering if she ha an expectant look about her.......I do hope so, fingers crossed you get to hear something soon as that would just be fantastic news. Did you have any inkling that she was expecting when you saw her?

Pandora looks very serene there doesn't she. Kaylana has the look of queen about her and Pandora a beautiful Princess.

Tanks so much for those CC and please don't stop

I do love Mohan; he is so sincerely macho! "Look how big and mighty I am! And so handsome!!"  Laughing 

When I saw Kalyana, she was lying on the ground so that I could not see her belly. I think she will give birth very soon, or maybe she has already!
The zoo never tells the news right away, which I kind of understand: they want to make sure that everything is ok and so they wait until the cubs are about 4-5 weeks old.

But I do have a strong feeling that something has happened already!  Wink

OK guys, here it is: Kalyana has given birth to three cubs about three weeks ago!  http://i70.servimg.c  http://i70.servimg.c  http://i70.servimg.c

Wasn't I right?!  Very Happy
The zoo has not announced this officially yet, I heard the news from other sources.

I visited the zoo today, and the other lions were out but Kalyana probably had something more important to do inside as she did not show up at all...

I love you  CC
