Our lion cubs, two females and a male (right), at age 7 weeks.
LIONS LIONS LIONS!
Moxy, our female lioness, gave birth to three lively cubs Saturday, December 15, 2012. The birth went smoothly, Mammal Specialist Robert Porec announced and he went on to say that the lioness and her cubs will remain in their birthing quarters for the near future. Although, according to the mammal staff, Moxy is an amazing mother, they are being closely monitored by the Zoo's veterinary staff. This picture was taken from a live video camera mounted in the birthing quarters. Check back for more information and pictures.
The three cubs (two girls and a boy) are thriving. Keepers were able to separate Moxy from her cubs, so they could clean, change the bedding, weigh the cubs and determine their sex. Moxy accepted this process calmly. The cubs' weights were 3.34kg for the first born cub, a female, 3.68kg for the male, and 3.14kg for the third born which is also a female. They will receive their first set of vaccinations at 4 weeks of age, then again at 6 weeks, and the final at 12 weeks. After completing their inoculations and upon the approval of Dr. Ben Okimoto, Zoo Veterinarian, they will be introduced to their exhibit (Maybe mid-March).
