Lion Cub Born at St. Louis Zoo

"Imani" is the sole survivor of a litter of two African lion cubs born at the St. Louis Zoo on July 17th. The other female cub was stillborn. Imani, whose name means "faith" in Swahili, was removed from Big Cat Country for hand-rearing at the zoo's veterinary hospital and appears to be healthy after three weeks of hand-feeding. Zoo officials hope to reunite Imani with her mother Cabara in the near future. The father of the cub is Ingozi. (St. Louis zoo photo/Rachael Macy)
