Your morning adorable: Lion cubs get a checkup at Israeli zoo

Lion cub on a scale

A pair of African lion cubs born at Israel's Zoological Center Tel Aviv-Ramat Gan (also known as the Ramat Gan Safari) in May had their media debut Sunday when they received a checkup and their vaccinations.

We just can't get over how adorable a lion cub looks on a scale. But really, if we're being honest, any big cat cub looks darn cute on a scale. (Someone start a tumblr blog, quick!)

The cubs join an older set of triplet lions born at the zoo late last year. Those cubs made zoo staff heave a sigh of relief, because they were the first female cubs born there after a male-cub-heavy few years.

See more photos of the cubs after the jump!
