China zoo welcomes litter of 6 lion cubs

A zoo in China has some new additions after six lion cubs were born.

The litter of six set a new national record for most cubs in one litter.

The cubs' mom, Rose, is understandably a little tired and frail after giving birth to such a large litter and was receiving some extra treats to boost her health.

Six cubs at one time is rare among lions, and the multiple birth surprised keepers at the Guaipo Siberian Tiger Park in Shenyang, capital of Liaoning province.

The zookeepers were also giving extra attention to the runt of the litter, grooming and bottle feeding it.
