WASHINGTON (AP) — A 9-year-old African lion has given birth to four cubs in the Great Cats exhibit at the National Zoo.

Officials say the lion mother, named Shera, delivered the cubs over seven hours on Sunday. This is Shera's second litter of cubs and the fifth for 8-year-old father, Luke. He is also the father of 10-year-old Nababiep's two female cubs born Jan. 24.
