Apr 19, 2001, 01:00 ET from Como Zoo

    ST. PAUL, Minn., April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Along with the rest of the Twin
 Cities' community, the lions at Como Zoo are eager for spring.  On Friday,
 April 20th at 10:15 a.m. the lions will enter their outdoor exhibit for the
 first time this year.  We predict that the lions will be extremely lively and
 playful as they enter the exhibit, which will be filled with a variety of
 spring surprises, including springtime toys, treats and flowers.  The lions
 have been housed in their indoor exhibit in Como Zoo's Cat House since October
 of 2000.
 
     WHAT:        Como Zoo's lions to enter their outdoor exhibit, filled with
                  spring surprises, for the first time of the year.
 
     WHEN:        Friday, April 20th -- 10:15 a.m.
 
     WHERE:       Como Zoo's outdoor Lion Exhibit
 
     DIRECTIONS:  Park in Como Zoo's Wolf Parking Lot (located just off
                  Midway Pkwy), and enter the Zoo's grounds.  The Cat
                  House is directly to your left, and the outdoor lion exhibit
                  is on the north side of that building.
 
     For over 100 years, Como Zoo has entertained and educated visitors of all
 ages.  Como Park is one of the top year-round attractions in the Twin Cities,
 drawing approximately 1.7 million people annually.  Beginning in 1897 with a
 small herd of deer, Como Zoo today boasts over 340 animals of over
 100 species.
