The cubs were born Sunday to Shera, a 9-year-old African lion. The delivery took nearly seven hours, zoo officials said.

Beautiful mama+babies! A pity that enclosure is walled concrete--no warmth at all. Thx Cher

So small, so innocent. welcome to a world of enclosure, poor babies. Yes, what happened to the 4th up there, it seems to have little to no movements?

We need to stop exploiting these poor innocent souls. If the zoo truly loves them, they will let all the animals go to sanctuaries or set free those that are able to survive on their own.

Wonderful, but unfortunately after one year they are going to take the babies away.

The babies will go to other families so they can breed. This is what lions do.

Wonderful. At least as long as the cubs remain cubs!

aww they're so tiny. i've been to the Nat'l Zoo; the indoor enclosure isn't nice, but they have a nice area outside, for a zoo.
