Here's a little cuteness for your weekend.
The caretakers of African lion Neka recently introduced her three 7-week-old cubs Kamali, Angalia and Zalika to the outdoor habitat at the Oregon Zoo.
"While the cubs' official public debut may have to wait for spring when they're a little bigger and temperatures have started to rise, keepers took advantage of a couple warm, sunny afternoons this past week to get the young lions acquainted with their new space," the zoo posted on its official site.
Watch as the adorable felines chase each other in the enclosure, climb over logs and try to bite their mom's tail.
"They've been having a great time," said Laura Weiner, senior keeper of the zoo's Africa area. "They're doing just what lions should be at their age — climbing and jumping off logs, swatting at each other. Angalia even jumped in the water drinker very briefly."
Before the keepers let the little cubs into the outdoor habitat, they had to "cub-proof" it. They drained the pool and lined the bottom of the moat with straw bedding to make it safer for the little ones.
"If any of the cubs decide to roll down the hill, they'll have a soft landing," Weiner said. "We're not sure they'll venture out that far, but we want to be prepared just in case."
