Cute cub checkup


Portland, OR - To make sure you get your daily allowance of cute.

Look at these little guys, or more correctly little girls!

Three 12-day old lion cubs making their furry debut during their first neonatal examination.

The cubs were born September 7 at the Oregon zoo in Portland.

The zoo's animal care staff performed the examination one day early after noticing one of the cubs didn't seem to be interacting with her sisters.

Officials say it may be a month or two before the cubs can make their public debut at the zoo.
