FOUR Asian lion cubs are new arrivals at Fota Wildlife Park. 

They were born to second-time parents, mother Gira and father Shanto. The now 10-week-old cubs were born, along with a fifth cub who was stillborn. 

The cubs join their parent’s first litter who are now one and a half years old – Amira, Arya and Loki and aunt Gita in their specially designed habitat in Fota. 

As yet the cubs are unsexed and unnamed and Fota Wildlife Park is calling on the public to help name them and be in with a chance to win one of four year-long Conservation Annual Passes.
