Four white lion cubs born at the Toronto Zoo have reached the eight-week mark and new levels of cuteness.

A video released by the zoo this morning shows the four cubs adorably playing and yawning.

The zoo said a checkup has confirmed that all four cubs born to four-year-old mother Makali are healthy. They're also all boys. 

The cubs were born on Sept. 26 and 27. This is Makali's first litter of cubs.

For now the cubs are being kept in the zoo's maternity den of the lion habitat and are not available for public viewing.
