cub The club

Our handy cards help keep seven cubs straight!

The Washington Post Sunday - - KIDS POST -

It’s been a long wait, but the Na­tional Zoo’s seven new lion cubs are fi­nally go­ing out in their yard, where vis­i­tors can watch them romp and roll. The cubs were born in two lit­ters: four to Shera on Aug. 31 and three cubs to her sis­ter Naba­biep on Sept. 22. (All seven cubs have the same fa­ther, 5-year-old Luke). The cubs are grow­ing fast! They weighed only seven to eight pounds at two weeks old, when they were first weighed, but now they range from about 35 to 50 pounds.

The new ar­rivals go out­side at 12:30 p.m. most days. But with so many of the cud­dly cubs jump­ing around the en­clo­sure, how do you know which is which? Well, you can cut out these handy trad­ing cards and take them with you!
