More about Tejika

The 5-year-old lioness Tejika was shifted to Jaipur Zoo from Junagarh, Gujarat, nearly one and a half years ago. Later she was shifted to Nahargarh Biological Park with another Asiatic lion Siddhartha.

Ever since she was shifted to Jaipur,  she was battling a number of diseases including paralysis at one point of time.

But the Asiatic lioness fought and survived against all odds and also developed a chemistry with lion (named Siddhartha), leading to these wonderful 3 cubs.

For now the lioness and the cubs have been kept in a secluded area, away from the eyes of anyone as human intervention at this point of time can cause her to abandon the cubs.
