You're going to hear me roar! Mumbai Zoo to add a pair of Lions

In an animal exchange programme, Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani has approved the proposal to provide a pair of the lions to Mumbai and Punjab each. This programme has been initiated with the aim to introduce diverse forest and animal estate.

One pair of the lion will be transferred to Mumbai’s Veermata Jijabai Bhosale Udyan (or Rani Baug) from Junagadh's Sakkarbaug Chidiyaghar, soon. In return, the Mumbai zoo will provide Junagadh's zoo with the two pairs of Zebra, Cocktail Grey, Cocktail White, and four pairs of Night Aron along with one female hornbill.
