Update: It's come to our attention that it's very unlikely that a legitimate big cat sanctuary would sanction or allow breeding in captivity.
Recently the Center for Animal Research and Education welcomed the birth of three little lion cubs to their sanctuary. The CARE center is devoted to giving homes to exotic animals in need.
The cubs came as quite an unexpected surprise: their dad, Mwali, is less than two years old, and male lions generally reach sexual maturity at about three years old. Nevertheless, the birth was a pleasant surprise, and the babies were welcomed into the CARE family.
The three cubs, Araali, Jelani, and Zuberi, are all boys and seem to have playful personalities already:
Zuberi enjoys (and concentrates intently on!) his breakfast.
