The Virginia Zoo doesn't have the vast savannas of Sub-Saharan Africa, so Asha and Kali, 300 and 350 pounds respectively, won't be hunting antelope, wildebeest, or zebras. But they will join Ansel pouncing on geese brave enough to land on the grass. Lions can jump up to 37 feet and sprint up to 50 mph in short bursts, so the geese are outmatched on land. However, Emily explained that "the geese have learned that if they go in the water, the lions aren't likely going after them." Their natural habitat doesn't include many bodies of water, so like many housecats, they have an aversion to baths.
Apart from those natural enrichment items, the Virginia Zoo rounded out Ansel, Asha, and Kali's Housewarming Party with more gifts purchased and donated by zoo fans and enthusiasts, including, interestingly enough, fragrances.
