wiki on zooshttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZooQuoteHenry III received a wedding gift in 1235 of three leopards from Frederick II, Holy Roman Emperor, and in 1264, the animals were moved to the Bulwark, renamed the Lion Tower, near the main western entrance of the Tower. It was opened to the public during the reign of Elizabeth I in the 16th century. During the 18th century, the price of admission was three half-pence, or the supply of a cat or dog for feeding to the lions. The animals were moved to the London Zoo when it opened.

Beautiful animal. Probably relatively new to the zoo... and probably they killed him after the accident. BTW, African lion may go extinct by 2050: http://www.theguardian.com/environment/ ... n-red-list Zoo's are not only torture to wild animals but also an excuse to claim their natural habitats.

Not fun. Petunias are toxic to cats (they cause skin and mucous membranes irritation and poisoning).

Petunias are from Solanaceae family, the name of which comes from a substance which is toxic for cats (and people, e.g. we shouldn't eat green or uncooked potatoes because of it). I know such things thanks to my grandma who's a biologist, but I double-checked this information on some Polish webpage before posting...
