Keepers say that Shera's cubs, now two weeks old are thriving and beginning to overcome the first milestones of their lives. All of the cubs have now opened their eyes! Recently, they began to venture from the cubbing den (where they were born) into an adjacent enclosure under Shera's watchful eye.
You can watch them on the Zoo's cub cam, but since you can't watch the cub cam 24/7, check out this video for a very clear look at their cute faces.
The Smithsonian's National Zoo's five-year-old female lion, Shera, gave birth to four cubs between 10:30 p.m. August 30 and 2:00 a.m. August 31. The father is 4-year-old Luke.
