African Lion at Denver Zoo
Jenny Harding, For TSM

When you walk upon Predator Ridge at Denver Zoo, you would swear you are in Africa! You can meander through rock outcroppings and native brush to experience lions, hyenas and African wild dogs in what is very similar to their natural habitat.

With rotational yards, different species may be seen in the exhibit at different times.

When we visited Denver Zoo, we had the opportunity to see how playful the big cats are. Thanks to my lovely wife, Jenny, for taking some beautiful pictures.
