In a heartwarming display at London Zoo, three Asiatic lion cubs have been seen venturing outside for the first time under the watchful eye of their mother Arya.

Captivating images capture the 8-week-old cubs initially hesitant, seeking comfort from their mother, before joyfully frolicking in their Indian-themed enclosure, playfully chasing each other and tugging at their mother’s tail.

The zookeepers at London Zoo shared: “The cubs, born on 13 March 2024, have so far spent their time cosied up in their special indoor cub dens with mum.”

“The trio are yet to be sexed, and this will happen during their first health check later this month.”

These cubs represent a vital contribution to the conservation breeding programme aimed at ensuring the survival of this Critically Endangered species.

With the wild population confined to India’s Gir Forest in Gujarat, they face significant risks from disease or natural calamities.

Current estimates indicate there are only between 600 to 700 of these majestic creatures left in the wild.
