Four lion cubs born at Toronto Zoo ‘appear healthy,’ zoo says

TORONTO — It just got a little more crowded in the Toronto Zoo’s lion habitat.

The zoo says in a Facebook post that the white lion Makali gave birth last weekend to four cubs, fathered by another white lion, Fintan.


It says Makali and her cubs are feeding and appear healthy, but the first 30 days are critical.

During that time, it says the cubs, who were born Saturday night and early Sunday morning, will be kept out of the public’s sight in the habitat’s maternity den.

Staff will monitor them and provide updates on their progress.

The zoo says it will announce “naming details” once the cubs are older.
