This cub's sister died shortly after their birth. He was a part of the third pair of cubs born to the pride that year. The cubs are routinely separated from their mother after birth in order to get them acclimated to their handlers and also to keep a better eye on their growth and development. The cubs were part of an educational program at the facility geared towards school kids. He was eventually reunited with his mother and the rest of the lions. So cute!
