On Friday, Sept. 17 at noon, you can take part in <a target="blank" nationalzoo.si.edu="" animals="" greatcats="" lionupdates="" href="a web chat about the zoo's new cubs and the cubs on the way. Take a look at the cub cam while you're at it. You will also learn what it takes to build a lion pride.
