Christian the Lion was born on 12 August 1969 in Ilfracombe Zoo in Devon, UK. Christian became a YouTube sensation after this clip went viral in 2008.
To celebrate Christian’s birthday the new official website for A Lion Called Christian has been launched. The new website features a gallery with photos by Derek Cattani, Christian’s story, information on books, films and television appearances and recent news updates and interviews.
Happy Birthday Christian from the HMMG team!
