Al Ain zoo names lion cubs Dana and Laith
Al Ain Wildlife Park and Resort's new lion cubs will be called Dana and Laith, after a three-year-old's suggestions beat hundreds of others.
Born in October, Dana "large pearl" is the female and "Laith" "lion" the male.
The names were suggested by Laith Qattmeer, a Jordanian from Abu Dhabi.
"It was important to pick names that were closest to those living here" said Farshid Mehrdadfar, manager of the park's animal collection department.
