Although they still remain at the setter, the cubs are growing healthy and put on weigh day after day, and from time to time they received the lovely care of their mother Hua Zui Ba, who despite being a new mother, is proving to be an excellent in the care of her cubs.

According the Zoo carers, Queen Sofia could not hide her excitement and joy to have so close to these gentle animals. In fact once she arrived to the care centre his first question was if she could take the cubs in her arms.
