Ariel is a very docile lion who was born at the Emanuel Institute, which cares for several exotic animals with great attention and love! Ariel was born on June 18th, 2008, by caesarean section. Because of problems associated with the pregnancy – the mother lioness did not accept him.
The name Ariel, from Hebrew, was chosen because it means Lion of God.
Ariel has appeared several times on a television program in Brazil. Due to his docility, he grew up sleeping in the bed of his owners. Always being pampered, Ariel had birthday parties and all the attention he deserves.
