INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Zoo's three African lion cubs enjoyed the warm temperatures Friday! 

They were able to go outside and explore for the very first time. 

The 5-month-old cubs are named Enzi, Mashaka and Sukari. They have started to eat meat and they each weigh about 50 pounds. 

"First-time mom Zuri has shown excellent maternal behavior. She is playful and caring, and kept a watchful eye on her youngsters as they romped around in their new outdoor environment," a press release from the Indianapolis Zoo said.
