Newborn Lion Cubs Get Their First Checkup!

| Filed under: HealthCuteness!ZooLions

Newborn lion cubs are super cute!!

Ahhh! Newborn anythings are cute, but when it's newborn lions??

Stop the presses! Let's pet these pretty kitties while they're still too weak to destroy our faces.

A 6-year-old African Lion named Neka gave birth to three cubs at the Oregon Zoo back on September 7th.

The three babes are insanely cute and finally just got their first examination a week ago!

The three cubs are all girls and they're healthy and gorgeous, though one of the cubs needed some supplemental food because she wasn't nursing overnight!

Neka and her cubs are off exhibit at the moment, so they can bond and grow strong together.

One of the zoo keepers said:

"We will continue to take a hands-off approach as much as possible. But we'll be watching them closely over the next several weeks to assess their development."

That sounds like a plan! Watch them cubbies!!

Let's hope they're happy and healthy and super cute forever!

Check out a video of the pretty kitties AFTER THE JUMP!!
