Spike the African lion
Adopt Spike, ZSL Whipsnade Zoo's friendly king of the jungle!
Far from being a cowardly lion, Spike is really relaxed around people he knows.
He often comes up and rubs his head against the fence.
He’s also had cubs who are now fully grown and he's still a brilliant father.
By adopting Spike for yourself or as a gift, you will be directly supporting ZSL’s conservation work.
Adoption packs are £35
Our adoption packs are beautifully presented and include a certificate, photograph, information on your animal, subscription to our Wild About magazine plus some fun stickers and bookmarks. There is also a free zoo entry ticket so you can come and visit your new friend.
Postage is included in the price.
By purchasing an Animal Adoption pack you are helping to fund ZSL's conservation work.
