Out of all the lions, Tarzan was the most cautious as he explored his new enclosure.
“It is wonderful to see all the animals growing in confidence and strength, but especially so [with] Tarzan,” Tim Phillips, vice president of ADI, told The Dodo. “The slowest and most cautious of the lions, his beloved Tanya [is] protective of him, [and] the tough life Tarzan has had in the circus is clear to see. When he stepped on grass for the first time he marched around, taking it all in, but would not play with anything. The next day, he started to play with a tire and it was so rewarding to see his inner kitten coming out.”
