They are about eight months old now and have been named Lara, Shireen and Samson.

Addo Elephant Park Rangers estimate that the cubs have doubled in weight since their capture and are now weighing between 30 and 35kg each.

They will in due course be moved to a larger camp so as to allow them to start honing their stalking and capture skills.
