Jake the White Lion


This is Jake, a male white lion who lives with his sister Mishka in the National Zoo & Aquarium in Canberra.

During the weekend of 14-15 May, 2016, we spent time at the zoo, and had a special experience: we got to pet and feed Jake, up close and personal.

Being in his presence and having physical contact with Jake was an amazing experience, and one I would thoroughly recommend.

Mishka and Jake are the first zoo-based lions we have seen since our first trip to Africa, and it was great to see that they are healthy lions who are respected and treated well by the zookeepers.
