It may not be Broadway, but the lion cub triplets recently born at the Bronx Zoo are certainly the king and queens of cuteness. The Wildlife Conservation Society introduced the royal trio to the public Friday at its African Plains habitat. Favorite activities: wrestling with each other and nipping at their dad's tail.

The zoo is asking for the public's help with naming the two females and male. They were born Jan. 27 to proud mom Sukari and dad M'wasi.

The trio is their second litter. They're also the parents of Moxie, born in 2008. She was the first lion cub born at the zoo in 31 years.

Wild lions live in sub-Saharan Africa. The zoo's African Plains habitat aims to be a naturalistic representation of the Savannah.
