There are three new babies at the Hono­lulu Zoo.

Lioness Moxy gave birth to three cubs Saturday night.

The sex of the cubs is not yet known. Zoo director Manuel Mol­li­nedo says officials do not want to get too close or place any unnecessary stress on Moxy, whose first pregnancy ended in a stillbirth. He says she is being an excellent mother, cleaning the cubs and picking them up when they start to wander off.

The mother and cubs are isolated from Moxy’s mate, Ekundu, and are being kept from public view for now. Mol­li­nedo wasn’t sure when they would have their public debut.
