Newquay Zoo is sad to announce that our beautiful lioness, Connie, passed away in the early hours of this morning at the age of 18.

Connie retired to Newquay Zoo from Longleat Safari Park in 2002, she was much loved by zoo staff and visitors alike, and had enjoyed a long life at the Zoo. Animal collections manager, John Meek said,
‘We are all very sad to lose Connie, but feel that 18 is a great age for a lioness. She has been a stalwart of the Zoo for over a decade and of course she will be sadly missed by all staff, however we will hope to find a new companion for our male lion Sampson in the near future’
