New Orleans zoo’s new exhibit: A lion, a tiger, a rhino

The new exhibit at the Montrose Zoo, home of the New Orleans Pelicans, includes a lion, an African elephant, and an African rhino, all named after their city.

A zoo spokeswoman said the new exhibit will also feature a tiger and a rhinoceros, all of whom will have a history in the city and have come from local and national conservation efforts.

The new exhibit is expected to open to the public in early September, the spokeswoman said.
