Updated: Omaha Zoo Welcomes Baby Lion Cubs

Posted: Updated:

Officials at the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha say five lion cubs were born last month at Nebraska's largest zoo.

The cubs were born Dec. 29 and one cub that had to be bottle fed at a nearby hospital was reunited with her siblings Wednesday.

Now all five cubs are on display with their mother and aunt in the zoo's Cat Complex.

The cubs include two males and three females. The cub that was isolated had to do so because she was smaller than the other cubs and couldn't compete for food.

Officials say the cub has since become stronger and more vigorous.

The last lion birth at the zoo was in 1994.
