Sama and Luna are sisters who were confiscated at the age of 4 months in 2011 by official bodies from private ownership in Jordan. They can often be heard roaring due to their very loud roars. Sama is known to be grumpy in the morning but Luna brings out her best side!
Although Luna started showing neurological problems secondary to nutritional deficiencies shortly after her arrival to Al Ma’wa, she was a very playful and funny cub, She has continued to receive proper nutritional care and has made improvements. Both lionesses can often be observed enjoying laying in the sunshine.
