A Czech Zoo had the pleasure of having two new Barbary lion cubs in their family. They are of course a great addition to the rare population of this type of lions in the wild.

The two beautiful baby lions were born on May 10th 2019 and melt the hearts of the Zoo visitors. One is male and the other is female. The Barbary lion mother is called Khalila and these two gorgeous cubs are born in the Dvur Karlove park. She is helping them make the first steps and gives all her love to them.

This is the biggest lion subspecies which is now almost extinct. They are native from northern Africa and wiped out due to human activities. Earlier in time, gladiators were killing the lions and later hunting is the reason why these animals are going extinct. It is estimated that fewer than 100 live in captivity.

It is a shame that the Barbary lions are almost extinct and they are so beautiful. This is a chance to fix this error and try to get more babies of this species. We owe it to them.

Check out the video of the cute lion cubs and enjoy:
