Kids Brighten Lions’ View at Brookfield Zoo

Celebs have nothing on Brutus and Titus, 4-year-old African male lions at Brookfield Zoo. The new-to-Chicago pair have been getting a lot of fan mail lately from area kids. Kids’ pictures also frame the window of their outdoor habitat.

Because they are getting so many photos, the zoo even created a page on its website to post the artwork.

Brookfield Zoo plans to reopen this summer when it’s safe to do so. They will sell timed tickets online to non-members and members will register for a slotted time, so that the grounds aren’t crowded. 

In the meantime, you can connect with Brookfield Zoo with their Bring The Zoo to You live chats or consider purchasing one of their animal-themed face masks for kids.
