Weigh In

Lion Cub In CupA 12 day old african lion cub is weighed on a scale during a veterinary check at the Oregon Zoo. The original photo was taken by Michael Durham, the official photographer for the Portland, Oregon Zoo.

I believe this photo was taken before the names for the cubs were selected. This looks like Kamali, the runt of the litter, who needed help early in her life. She was hospitalized and carefully nursed back to health before being returned to her family. She is doing much better as her mama, Neka, instantly accepted little Kamali and began cleaning and nursing her.
