Just adorable!

Dublin Zoo has just welcomed three sea lion pups and they are the cutest little things.

Two weeks ago, the first sea lion to give birth, Cassie, welcomed a healthy female pup during the early hours of Friday June 7.

Three days later, another sea lion, Sienna also gave birth to a healthy female pup on June 10. Both female pups were born similar in size weighing around 6.3 kilos.

Meanwhile, Florencealso known as Flo to zoo keepers, gave birth and welcomed a male pup on the June 13 weighing 7.6 kilos.

Sea lions give birth during the month of June every year.

Team Leader Ciaran McMahon says: “All three sea lion pups and mothers are doing extremely well and settling into Sea Lion Cove, watched over by proud father Niko.

“Cassie’s pup is already swimming, and the two other pups are expected to start swimming within the next few days. The three new additions bring the sea lion colony up to nine.”

We are definitely going to visit them very soon.
