Sacramento Zoo’s triplet cubs

Like proud parents with photographs of newborns, the Sacramento Zoo has pictures of newly birthed lion cubs.

The little lions were born Friday and are in good health.

The mother lion and cubs will be off-exhibit for a while to allow her some bonding time with her youngsters. If all goes well, the cubs could be ready to explore their exhibit in December.

Until then, pictures will have to do. The zoo hopes to provide video at some future date.

Call The Bee’s Bill Lindelof, (916) 321-1079.
