Lions are back at the Cape May County Zoo. It will just take time before visitors hear the call of the wild.

Six Flags Great Adventure gave the zoo two African lions, a brother and sister, after the zoo's 16-year-old lion, Brutu, died in May.

Keeper Vince Sonetto tells The Press of Atlantic City Brutu was known for his roar, which could be heard in neighboring homes.

Sonetto says 3-year-old Lex and Bella snarl and growl, but are still too young to roar.

Sonetto says the lions were hand-raised as cubs and still crave human attention.
