Baby Warthogs Born At Zoo Miami

Just as the Arsht Center hosts Pumbaa, the singing warthog in Broadway hit “The Lion King,” Zoo Miami welcomes four new warthogs piglets. But that’s not the first connection the local zoo’s had to the Disney production. The film’s animators visited Zoo Miami back in 1993 (when it was still called Miami Metro Zoo) and studied the resident animals as models for some of the characters in the film.
