DENVER, Colo. -- The Denver Zoo has welcomed four new zoo babies!

The 1-year-old African lion cubs arrived in the mile high city early Wednesday morning.

The male cubs, Kito, Bahati, Jafiri, and Ufiku, came from the Lee Richardson Zoo in Garden City, Kansas.

They will be kept in the maternity area of the Predator Ridge exhibit at the zoo until they become accustomed to their new surroundings and clear a mandatory quarantine period.

The Denver Zoo will announce when the cubs will meet the public and you can count on Denver7 to let you know when that happens.
