The Barbary lion father "Schroeder" can be seen with some of the lion cubs, at the zoo in Neuwied, Germany, Monday, June 26, 2017. Five rare Barbary lion cubs have been presented for the first time at a zoo in Germany, delighting visitors as they clumsily plodded through their enclosure. Barbary lions, which originally roamed the Atlas mountains in Northern Africa, have been extinct in the wild for about 100 years. The zoo says that there are only around 90 to 100 animals in zoos around the world. (Thomas Frey/dpa via AP)
