INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) The Indianapolis Zoo welcomed three new members who were born on Sept. 21.

The three new African lion cubs are the first to be born at the zoo since 2003. A female and two males were born to their parents, mother Zuri and father, Nyack.

The first cub was born sometime during the night or early morning and the other two cubs followed around 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Zuri and the cubs will remain indoors for several months so the newborns can grow. The cubs are expected to make their first appearance to the public in spring 2016 with the new glass windows and additional areas for viewing.

The cubs have not been named yet, because the zoo wants your help. The public will be able to vote for the names on the zoo’s Facebook page.
