LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Two-year-old Adia has been at her new home for a month now. The lion's name translates to "gift". Adia is originally from Africa. Her keeper said although she is only known Adia for a short time, her playful personality is already shining through. The zoo has big plans for the young lion.
"The ultimate goal is to breed Adia with another lion," said Heather Hutchinson, Adia's keeper. Hutchinson said it will also be exciting to have more lions in the exhibit.
