Video: 3-day-old lion cubs nursing

Posted by: Rebecca Whitham, Editor


The lion cubs, seen here at three days old, are doing well behind the scenes with mom Adia. Watch them wrestle and roll around as they position themselves for nursing in this new video:

In case you missed it, find the first photos and video of the cubs in the birth announcement from last week.

We'll continue to provide updates on the three boys from behind the scenes. It'll be some time before we see the family out on exhibit. For now, they need to focus on nursing, bonding with mom, developing their motor skills and getting big and strong!
