The baby boom continues at Taronga Zoo in Sydney, with the park welcoming not one, but five, lion cubs.

The zoo confirmed the happy arrivals this week, noting it's the first time they've had lion cubs born on site in 18 years.

The five cubs – three females and two males – were born 12 August. They were born to experienced mum Maya and first-time dad Ato, who celebrated his fourth birthday the day the cubs arrived.
