Three African lion cubs were born at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle Friday.

A trio of male African lions was born at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle Friday to 5-year-old mom, Adia, and 7-year-old dad, Xerxes. Adia had four cubs in 2012, but Xerxes is a first-time dad. Veterinarians were able to get a quick look at the cubs while moving them and their mom in to an off-exhibit maternity den, where they’re being monitored around the clock. They are nursing and bonding with their mom, while being kept apart from their dad. — Read it from the Woodland Park Zoo
