Blackpool Zoo has welcomed a new arrival Wallace the lion. Named after the monologue Albert and The Lion, which is a story about Mr and Mrs Ramsbottom taking their son Albert to Blackpool Zoo where he was swallowed whole by Wallace the lion!
Wallace, who is a two and a half year old African male lion, has settled in well. The zoo already has three female lions and the zoo hope to breed from him next year.
ICG thinks Wallace will be a roaring success!
