Pair of lions head home

The "hairy boys," two 6-year-old lions, will make their way back home to Wellington Zoo this week.

The lions named Malik and Zulu, each weighing over 170kg, lived in Christchurch's Orana Wildlife Park on a breeding loan for two years.

Malik sired five youngsters (two females and five males) during their stay.
