The Houston Zoo has a new addition! Hasani, a 3-year-old, 400-pound male, is joining the lion habitat at the Houston Zoo.

Hasani comes to Houston from the Oregon Zoo, where he was born. Visitors can see Hasani most mornings in the lion habitat where he is getting acquainted with his environment and the three lionesses. They will be alternating yard time until he gets to know them better.

Hasani is the first male lion to live at the Houston Zoo since the passing of lion Jonathan in September 2016.
