Hand raised lion cub in San Diego

Four-month-old Nyack (R) greets his cousin Ingozi at the San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park in San Diego on April 18, 2008. The male lion is now living at Lion Camp after spending the first few months of his life at the Wild Animal Park's nursery where he was hand raised. The male cub was born Dec. 6 following a difficult delivery. While his mother initially tended to the cub, her maternal care began to wane, compromising his health. The cub has since recovered fully and is being introduced to other cubs at Lion Camp. Although his new companions are being raised by their mothers, the cubs spend the mornings away from their parents to help socialize Nyack. (UPI Photo/Ken Bohn/San Diego Zoo)
