The professional animal care of the lions was provided by the staff of the Givskud Zoo, Denmark. Collected embryos were evaluated and further handled by Romy Hribal, Caterina Wiedemann and Natalia Mikolaewska, all from IZW Berlin. They also provided the microscopic pictures of the embryos. We thank Nga Nguyen, Jette Ziep, Marlies Rohleder and Katrin Paschmionka for their technical assistance. The study was partly funded by BMBF 033L046.
