The Toronto Zoo has shared a cute new video of lion cubs playing with each other as their father, Fintan, keeps an eye on them.

"Our white lion cubs continue to grow and have slowly been introduced to dad, Fintan," zoo officials said. "They are still very active, playful and rambunctious."

The zoo says each cub now weighs more than 30 pounds and that zoo keepers are working on integrating the pride with Fintan and the cubs every weekday.

Visitors can see the four cubs and their mother Makali every Saturday and Sunday between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
