Soccer Star Cabara

Carnivore Keeper Jackie McGarrahan witnessed Cabara, our female African lion, playing with her “jolly eggs” – one of her favorite enrichment items. In zoos, the majority of animals' needs are provided by keepers, so other methods of physical and mental stimulation are provided to encourage natural behaviors, like stalk-and-chase behaviors. We think she might be ready to welcome Major League Soccer and St. Louis CITY SC to St. Louis. #stlCITYsc
