 AFRICAN LION: Some of you may have seen a recent video, or been to the Zoo and seen Kwanza, our male lion, limping. Kwanza is starting to show his age, and at 14 years old he’s not a young cub anymore. We thank everyone for their concern! A recent exam showed a narrowing of the space between vertebrae in his neck, which can affect the nerves of his front leg, causing the limp. We are treating it with medication and cold laser therapy to reduce inflammation. In addition, we are tracking Kwanza’s kidney values over time due to his kidney disease, which is common in aged exotic and domestic cats. Birmingham Zoo’s Animal Care Professionals and veterinary team will continue to monitor Kwanza continuously and provide him with the best care and attention worthy of this majestic and much-loved cat. . #AfricanLion #BhamZoo #BirminghamZoo  Animal Care Professional in Predators, Scott K.
