Update, Jan. 9, 4:30 p.m.: A female lion cub has rejoined her mother and brothers and sisters in the Cat Complex at the Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium, after being briefly hospitalized last week for specialized care. The cub received around-the-clock care because she was smaller than the others and wasn't competing for food, according to zoo officials.
