It’s a boy! And a boy! And a girl!

Three African lion cubs were born to female “Kaya” late last week–Kaya’s Keeper heard them vocalizing when she arrived on the morning of July 28th,2011.  Mom and the three cubs have been left largely undisturbed so that she can focus on taking good care of them, but vets gave the babies their first medical check this morning.  The three cubs (two boys and a girl) seem healthy and strong.  They won’t be on exhibit for a while, but we’ll keep you posted on their growth!
