Bella has an implant fitted

Our favourite lioness went under brief anaesthesia this week where she was fitted with a new contraceptive implant – though Bella and Simba are very close we don’t want them getting too close for the moment in an effort to avoid any pressure on both lions’ aging arthritic joints. We also took this opportunity to give her a mini health check and take some blood samples, of which we are awaiting the results from the lab. After having been apart for the day, Bella and Simba were very happy to be back together and are enjoying each other’s company once again!
