Boboo (pronounced Ba-Boo) is an almost three-year-old male African Lion. Boboo arrived at the Phoenix Zoo on Sunday from the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in Ohio. 

Boboo is not only super cute, but is a “spunky” lion who is very smart and of course loves food. 

But wait, you can’t meet this fur baby just yet. Boboo will reamain in an off-exhibit for the next few weeks to get used to his enviroment and his new home. 

Boboo will soon have a new friend named Cookie, the zoo’s 20-year-old female African Lion. Zoo keepers want to see how the two will interact with each other before they place them in the same exhibit. No, the two lions will not be a breeding pair, but the zoo hopes they will get a long for public appearances together.
