Mazal tov! The Ramat Gan Safari celebrated the birth of two new lion cubs at the zoo over a month ago, at the beginning of IDF's Operations Cast Lead in Gaza. The zoo's workers decided to name the newborn cubs Shalom and Salam – which means "peace" in Hebrew and Arabic respectively. Peace loving cubs? (Photo: Tibor Yeger) This week the cubs were separated from their mother Sivan for the first time and spent about an hour alone at the African park. They were also vaccinated, treated for worms and weighed. The month and-a-half old, 20 lbs cubs were later returned to their mother, and are now expected to gradually become integrated with the rest of the pride. The cubs will first be integrated with females who had cubs of their own in the past, and later with younger females who have not raised cubs yet. Only at the final stage will they be introduced to the males, before going out to the open terrain with the entire pride.
