Lion cub triplets melt hearts at Frankfurt zoo


Visitors to the Frankfurt Zoo in Germany were treated to the sight of three 6-week-old lion cubs for the first time on Wednesday.

Before Wednesday, the cubs spent their time in the birthing den.

According to the zoo, mother Zarina had been looking after her babies and is a first-time mom.

Father Kumar has not met the cubs.

Just like in the wild, the mother lion has the chance to hide away with her cubs.

Officials said Kumar hasn’t been taking it well and has been “calling out” for the cubs.

The sex of the little ones has not been determined.

The cubs are Asiatic lions, a subspecies found only in India, so they will receive Indian names.
