Happy Birthday Christian!

Christian was born on 12 August 1969 – 48 years ago in Ilfracombe Zoo, Devon.

Although no one knows when Christian would have passed away in the wild, Christian was last seen by George Adamson in early 1973 when he was nearly four years old and was growing into one of the largest lions George had ever seen. He had survived the most dangerous years, although life as an adult lion would also always be very challenging. George thought he was looking for a territory of his own, away from the aggressive local lions of Kora. We like to think Christian created a pride of his own and lived at least the average 10 -12 years of lions in the wild.
