LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Zoo has something to roar about - a pair of lions.

The zoo says Hubert and Kalisa were introduced to their new exhibit on Tuesday. The zoo’s mammal curator, Jennie Becker, says the pair seems to be comfortable.

The 15-year-old African lions have been together for a decade. They were obtained from Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle.

The LA Zoo hasn’t had any lions since 2012, when the last one, Cookie, was euthanized because she had cancer.

She was 23.

Lions can live 10 to 14 years in the wild, on average. They can survive up to three decades in captivity.
