African lion cubs get their first teeth and have their first taste of meat

The two African lion cubs born to Joco and Zuri in July have started to get their first teeth

The cubs have begun to hiss and spit at the keepers when they go in to muck out their pen and keepers recently caught sight of the cubs first teeth growing through.

The pair are otherwise quiet and content, which shows that Zuri is feeding them well

The cubs are continuing to grow at a healthy rate and have even been seen enjoying their first taste of meat in the past week.

Although they won’t be fully weaned until they are around six to eight months old, after watching their mother Zuri tucking into her food, the cubs were seen taking their first bites of meat.
