Your morning adorable: Triplet lion cubs make their debut at Israeli zoo

Three one-month-old lion cubs make their first public appearance at the Ramat 
Gan Zoo near Tel Aviv on February 21.

At Israel's Zoological Center Tel Aviv-Ramat Gan (also known as the Ramat Gan Safari), 3-month-old lion cubs made their public debut Sunday.

All three cubs are female, which comes as a big relief for zoo staff. For the last several years, only male cubs have been born at the zoo, so an influx of females means a better balance for its lion community.

The cubs, which haven't been named yet, are the first triplet female lion cubs to be born at the zoo in its history. See more photos after the jump!
