ICG PRs favourite little female lion cubs have now been named thanks to Rock FM listeners and zoo visitors.Blackpool Zoo's big cat keepers sifted through the abundance of names and finally chose - Luna, Kimya and Nikita.The lovely names were chosen because each one sounds quite different and the lion cubs will learn the sounds, not the name. If the names were too similar the cubs would just get confused.The little cubs and mother, Gillian, have now been allowed out into the full enclosure and are enjoying exploring their home. And in August, the cubs will be introduced to the rest of the pride including their father Wallace and two lionesses Jasmine and Rachel!Im sure Wallace will be brimming with pride!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas... 🎄🎅🏼💫✨ https://t.co/PmGGF8xupQ
