It’s been a big week of bad news just about everywhere. So we feel obliged to share this footage with you.

Monarto Zoo recently welcomed four new lion cubs into their family, and now at five-weeks old, the cubs are starting to take some wobbly steps outside of their den. Under their mum’s watchful eye, of course.

Monarto staff have told us that the cubs’ mum, Husani, is doing a great job at looking after the four cubs in this trying time.

Have a watch of the cubs playing with each other in the (way too adorable) video here:


Zoos SA are planning to share more content of the cubs over the coming weeks as both Adelaide Zoo and Monarto have shut their doors in the midst of the coronavirus crisis.
