    The lion cubs were born Dec. 6, 2013.

    The San Diego Zoo Safari Park is giving animal lovers a look at two new lion cubs born just 10 days ago.

    Guests can see the male and female cubs in the park’s animal care center at 10 a.m. and noon.

    The two are doing well, gaining weight and feeding every two hours on kitten-starter formula.

    The cubs are being cared for by humans because their mother, Oshana, wasn’t giving them the attention they needed to thrive.

    They aren’t shy about demanding more food or calling out to each other.

    When the brother and sister are separated, they really vocalize according to senior mammal keeper Jennifer Minichino.

    The female cub is described as feisty while the male cub is considered to be calm.
