Cute debut: Lion cubs discover new home for first time

RARELY has there been a cuter debut than this!

Four baby lions were set loose in their new home for the first time after being born earlier this year at Werribee Open Range Zoo in Victoria.

The cubs were kept in a special nesting den after being delivered by mum Nilo on August 12.

But after getting a clean bill of health, the four cubs, two boys and two girls, were set free inside the sanctuary.

However, mum and cubs still have a wait to re-join the rest of the pride with the zoo keeping the animals apart for another couple of weeks to replicate what would happen in the wild.
