5 Photos of Reid Park Zoo's Adorable Lion Cubs

Posted By on Fri, Feb 28, 2014 at 9:20 AM

Here are four reasons why you should stop what you're doing and go to the Reid Park Zoo.The four African lion cubs that were born on December 23 made their public appearance on Thursday, and they are to die for. You can catch Baako, Jelani, Sango, and Nayo frolicing in their exhibit every morning from 9 a.m. to noon.

From the press release:

While on exhibit with Kaya, their mother, the pride may choose to rest behind-the-scenes - so viewing is not guaranteed at all times. For best viewing, visiting early is suggested. Shombay, the father, will be on exhibit each afternoon noon- 4 p.m. This routine will continue until further notice.
UPDATE: Unfortunately, the website says one of the cubs is feeling under the weather, so they will not be on exhibit today.

So, here's five photos of the most delightful little cubs in Tucson:
