There is drama this week when Kura, the lioness, is injured in a fight. She has a deep cut just above her eye that doesn’t seem to be healing. The Pridelands team must venture into the lions’ den to stitch up the wound. Even though Kura is unconscious during this procedure, it is still a nerve-racking experience for the keepers, as she is likely to be grumpy if she wakes up!

Also this week, Laurel goes swimming with a one-month-old baby elephant in Thailand, and back in Auckland, Iwani the siamang gibbon and his family swap houses.
