Three African Lion cubs were born to mom Kaya and father Shombay on July 28, at Reid Park Zoo in Tucson, AZ. Kaya’s Keeper arrived at work that morning and was surprised to hear them vocalizing!
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, so they can have the time to bond with their mother and each other before starting to explore their world.
