Lion Cubs' First Health Check at Edinburgh Zoo
The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland has revealed the three Asiatic lion cubs born at Edinburgh Zoo in August are two boys and a girl.
Keepers and veterinary staff at the wildlife conservation charity completed the ten-week old cubs’ first health check last week and will name them in the coming weeks.
The youngsters have started to explore outdoors but are still spending much of their time inside. Indoor viewing remains closed to the public to allow the family some peace and quiet.
