  • Description

    For this young lioness living in the Zoo in Rotterdam, it was such a shock to become a mother for the first time of five little sons and daughters, that she was overwhelmed and at a loss what to do with them.

    To save these young lions a fostermother was necessary and a good healthy dog was found to take over the mothers' task. The dog called "Rimmy" with her two own children, adopted three of the lions whelpsand is very pleased to have them around.

    Timmy is an ordinary streetdog from the streets of Rotterdam and - like many streetdog - she has a very nice character and no pretences. Immediately she loves and cares for the little creatures that are still very helpless, which they won't be when they are older.

    And the lioness gladly accepted two of her five children, (it was impossible to film the lioness with the two youngs).

    But this degenerated hyena-mother (right in the screen) prefers to play around and has not missed her 6 little hyena-dogs, who have been mothered and cared for by the dog "Debby", who has one child of her own.

    The hyena-dogs are now 1 1/2 months old and in excellent health.
