Feast your eyes upon the adorableness of these two cuties, lion cubs born to first time mother Asian lion Suri at Dublin Zoo.

In tonight's episode of The Zoo one of the cubs begins to lose weight and the zookeepers have to intervene to save its life.

Watch it if you can bear it!

Also tonight, more babies arrive at the African Plains when a new zebra foal is born for the first time in many years.

And Rhino keeper Ken travels to Zimbabwe to witness first-hand the battle between a conservation group, which is supported by Dublin Zoo, and the poachers who are intent on killing rhinos for their valuable horns.
