Three new lion cubs are doing well in their behind-the-scenes maternity den, Oregon zoo officials say.
They were born Saturday night to first-time mom, 6-year-old Neka.
The father of the cubs is 5-year-old Zawadi Mungu.
Zoo officials were taking a “hands-off” approach and watching the litter from a surveillance camera.
Depending on Neka’s comfort level, the cubs will soon get a visit get a quick checkup and the staff will determine their genders.
