Video: Smithsonian lion cubs take their first dip

May 6 was another big day for the Smithsonian National Zoo’s four lion cubs, as the 10-week-olds had their swimming tests. They must prove their paddling skills before they are allowed explore the lion enclosure, which has a moat. As this video shows, some are more natural water babies than others, but they all proved able to swim to safety. This means they will soon join their mother on public display, the zoo said.
