THIS IS AZIRA, a two-year-old lioness from a private zoo in Borysew, Poland.
Around her are her newly born offspring, extremely rare white lion triplets.
The three lion cubs were born last Tuesday to Azira and the male white lion at the zoo, three-year-old Sahim.
Azira and her cubs looking rather more relaxed.
White lions can often be born with birth defects but the zoo reports that all three cubs appear to be healthy with their mother taking care of them for the last week. Sahim is being kept in a separate enclosure.
Bath time in Borysew.
The zoo in central Poland say that their newest residents to the gardens have not yet received names because they have not yet been able to determine their gender.
“So, who wants to check?”
