But they've only recently started to venture out in an area known as Cheetah Hill in Fota.

Fota Wildlife Park is calling on the public to help name the cubs via an online survey on their blog.

Meanwhile, in Dublin zoo an endangered baby siamang gibbon has also been born to parents Cahaya and Luca.

The baby was born this past Sunday night.

Ciaran McMahon, team leader at Dublin Zoo said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome this siamang gibbon baby to Dublin Zoo. The species is listed as Endangered so every birth is extremely important. Cahaya and Luca are the most loving couple, very attentive to each other’s needs, and we have no doubt that they will make excellent parents.”
