Toronto Zoo names lion cubs, we're still calling them adorable

The Toronto Zoo's five-month-old lion cubs have now been named, but chances are you'll just be calling them adorable.

The names were chosen by zookeepers working closely with the cubs since they were born

The Toronto Zoo announced the cubs' names, Gus, Hank, Oliver and Harrison, in a Facebook post Thursday afternoon.

The Toronto Zoo's five-month-old lion cubs have now been named, but chances are you'll just be calling them adorable.

The cubs' names are Gus, Hank, Oliver and Harrison. They were announced in a Facebook post by the zoo Thursday afternoon.

While the zoo sometimes holds naming contests for its new additions, this time the honour went to the African Savanna keepers who have been working closely with the cubs since they were born.

The public can visit the cubs on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00am to 2:00pm, weather permitting.
