Three lion cubs born at the Cincinnati Zoo have been referred to as “1, 2 and 3” since their birth last November. But now they have proper names.
The cub formerly known as 1 is now Huruma, which means compassion in in Swahili. Cincinnati Zoo keepers picked that name to honor a colleague from the St. Louis Zoo who recently died. Becky Wanner helped raise the cubs’ mother, Imani. Huruma is also being referred to as Uma.
