Out for a Walk

Life is good for these cubs born in the Ouwehands Zoo in the Netherlands. Their mother gave birth to triplet cubs on November 22, 2014, but sadly one of the cubs, named Swimmer, died soon after birth. This photo, taken on February 19, 2015 marks the first time the cubs were seen outside their enclosure.
