San Antonio Zoo’s Lion habitat $1 Million Upgrade Completed


Visitors to San Antonio Zoo can now get up close and personal with the zoo’s lions, due to the completion of a million-dollar upgrade to their existing enclosure.

Executive director/CEO Tim Morrow said, “We stood in front of this habitat and dreamed about a better home for our lions, and today I’m happy to say that dream has become a reality, ”

Yard space was increased by 25% by filling in a concrete moat and large, tempered and reinforced glass gives guests a wholly new and more immersive lion encounter.

“Our vision for the new San Antonio Zoo continues to expand, and I am thrilled for what the future holds. We named this area of the zoo Big Cat Valley, as it’s home to both African lions and Sumatran tigers, and this exhibit is our gift to San Antonio and these majestic animals, ” said Morrow.
