We are thrilled to announce that our female African lion cub has been named!

She has been named Regina, which means queen in Latin.

This name is generously supported by The Docent Council at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, who is celebrating their 50th anniversary at the Zoo this year.

Thank you, Docent Council, for all you do for the Zoo!

One female cub and two male cubs were born at the Zoo on July 16.

The cubs are currently spending time behind-the-scenes in the Animal Care Center while the new lion exhibit is being renovated. Check back for the latest lion updates including when the lion exhibit renovation is complete and the date the cubs will be on exhibit.
