Zoo is now home to royalty
ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP) - January 18, 2013 (WPVI) -- The Detroit area is now home to royalty.
A lion, once owned by the royal family of Qatar, is making his home at the Detroit Zoo.
Simba arrived in October and will stay in the Motor City area.
The zoo says the royal family received Simba as a gift.
But after a few years the family decided the lion would be better off in a different environment.
Simba is joining the Detroit Zoo's other lions, in a recently remodeled 7,500-square-foot habitat.
