Image description: At the Smithsonian’s National Zoo, March came in like a lion — four lions, to be exact — 9-year-old African lion Shera gave birth to a litter at the Great Cats exhibit.
Their delivery March 2 spanned a seven-hour period, from 8:27 a.m. to 3:17 p.m. These cubs are the second litter for Shera and the fifth for 8-year-old father, Luke. Recently, Luke also sired 10-year-old Nababiep’s two female cubs born Jan. 24.
