Taronga Zoo Sydney have provided a cub-date on their African lion cubs as they reach 100 days old. The five cubs were born in August to parents Maya and Ato. There are two males and three females known as Khari, Luzuko, Zuri, Ayanna and Malika.

As the cubs continue their growth they are hitting all of their important growth milestones. These include beginning to consume a more meat based diet, though they do still enjoy a suckle from mom, and learning to play and climb. Malika is the one who currently suckles the most from mom.

All five cubs are now almost five times their birth weight with the two boys being larger than the girls.

Each of the cubs have developed their own personality and are showing more confidence each day.

Recently the pair have been challenging their skills by trying to climb the trees found in their habitat. As they become more active guests at Taronga have more chances to see them with the best time currently being from 10am till 2pm.
