Sort of cross-posted at DKos as Friday Evening Photo Blogging: Lion Cubs Today!
I took a little trip to the African veldt today.
Oh okay, I never made it out of the Bronx. Today I went to see the three new lion cubs that were born on January 27th and made their public début this week. So give a roaring welcome to Nala, Adamma and Shani as they get used to their new digs. Their big sister Moxie is a very good baby sitter for these 25 pound kittens.
These three young pooties might look like they are already studying for adulthood.
But they are filled with young energy and very cute.
Or striking a pose.
It’s all one big happy family and the best show in town now.
The proud papa is M’wasi’s who doesn’t get involved much.
And mama Sukari has her work cut out for her.
Dad is good for the occasional yawn himself.
But Moxie who was the star of the show last summer and is only eighteen months old never seems to tire.
Dad can get a little moody.
But when he does, mom will put things right.
The best views are with big sister, Moxie is still a star.
And very affectionate.
Mom does watch things when Moxie wants to go stare at the zebras.
And of course the three can be very demanding of her attention.
What a great family.
And a wonderful big sister.
