Ahhh, there is some new cuteness at the Denver Zoo! Three Royal Lion Cubs from Qatar are available for visitors to see during their temporary stay as weather permits.
The pitter patter of little paws can be heard at Denver Zoo's Predator Ridge exhibit with the arrival of three lion cubs from the Royal Family of Qatar. The trio, made up of males, Tsavo and Enzi, and female, Sabi, were born June 24, 2012 and will likely only live at Denver Zoo temporarily until permanent homes are determined. Weather permitting; visitors can see the triplet cubs in Predator Ridge during the next few months of their temporary stay.
This is the first time Denver Zoo has had lion cubs since 2006. The trio was donated by Sheik Khalid Hamad Al Thani, son of Qatar's ruling emir.
