    The nine-week old mini pride stepped out together for the first time to their specially-built playground.

    The latest arrivals were born on 24 April and is Dakota's second litter having given birth to five in 2014.

    The cute cubs, along with the pair that were born in July last year to Dakota’s own daughter, Zuri, has seen the pride increase to 13.

    Keepers have increased her feeds to ensure she is able to produce plenty of milk for her large litter, until they are fully weaned at around six to eight months old.

    Craig Lancaster, head of carnivores, said: "Dakota’s natural mothering instincts are brilliant and as this is her second litter she has settled into life as a mum again really well."
