Footage released by Sydney’s Taronga Zoo shows the moment four lion cubs and an adult male made a brief escape from their enclosure on November 2, sparking a lockdown at the iconic park.CCTV footage released on Thursday, December 1, shows the lions slipping through a hole in a fence around their enclosure and venturing outside.In a statement, Taronga Zoo said the five lions “calmly investigated within metres of their main exhibit, before actively trying to find their way back under the fence” as the lioness and zookeepers began calling for them.Three of the cubs and the male adult successfully reentered the exhibit, but one female cub was tranquilised by Taronga’s emergency response team and later transported back to the dens.Following the incident on November 2, Taronga Zoo said an “integrity issue with a containment fence” enabled the lions to escape.“Taronga’s review of the lion incident is ongoing, and an independent, specialist forensic engineer is still conducting detailed investigations on the failure and the complex mesh fencing system. Their review will also advise on necessary repairs,” the zoo said in a statement on Thursday.The zoo said the lions will continue to remain in an “outdoor, back-of-house habitat” pending findings and will not be back in their main exhibit before Christmas.

nobody mentioned the chance of four, never mind five babies because it was so low.</p><p>"When I found out there were five I was in complete shock, and feeling every emotion you could possibly feel.</p><p>"Seeing them in the NICU was love at first sight but I couldn't bear to leave them behind, so finally bringing them all home was an amazing feeling.</p><p>"Having four babies to look after is very messy - I'm constantly cleaning - and it's chaotic and crazy and loud.</p><p>"People are always making comments that I 'have my hands full' - and I do - there are definitely times I think 'how in the world am I going to do this?'.</p><p>"But it's so rewarding and so much fun, and I wouldn't have it any other way."</p><p>Hannah and Jacob, a financial planner, began trying to get pregnant three years ago, but when they didn't fall pregnant, took medication to encourage ovulation.</p><p>In October 2019, a pregnancy test came back positive - and later doctors confirmed Hannah was carrying not one, but FIVE babies.</p><p>Hannah said: "It was very shocking when I found out I had five babies.</p><p>"I thought I was suffering with infertility!</p><p>"We'd been told the chance of triplets was 1% and we thought anything more than that would be virtually impossible."</p><p>Hannah was just five weeks into her pregnancy when she first was able to see her five babies on a scan -

each one less than 2lb - and Hannah said they could fit in the palm of her hand.</p><p>The babies immediately needed to be hooked up to endless machines and wires to keep them alive.</p><p>Hannah said: "When I first saw them all, I was shocked, terrified and excited all at the same time.</p><p>"It was love at first sight but so scary seeing them attached to so many different tubes and monitors and wires."</p><p>Tragically, the first-time parents had to say goodbye to one of their daughters, Meredith, at just three days old following a fatal brain bleed which likely occurred during her birth.</p><p>The remaining four tiny babies - Philomena, Evangeline, Gideon and Elliot - had to spend varying lengths of time in NICU because they were too small and weak to go home.</p><p>Hannah and Jacob visited the tots in hospital every day as they fought to live - with Gideon suffering a collapsed lung and spending a long time on a ventilator.</p><p>By five months old, Philomena, Evangeline and Elliot had made it home, but Gideon remained in hospital.</p><p>He was unable to properly meet his siblings until he was a year old, when he finally grew strong enough to go home although remained on a ventilator.</p><p>On March 25 2021, Gideon was finally reunited with his siblings at home.</p><p>Hannah said: "Bringing them home was amazing but scary, it was the first time each of them had not been hooked up to monitors.</p><p>"Suddenly not being able to see their heart rate and oxygen levels was nerve-wracking, but also exciting.</p><p>"It was the first time that we were the ones properly taking care of them."</p><p>Since getting all four of the babies back home, Hannah and Jacob discovered the reality of looking after four tots at once.</p><p>It was made more of a challenge by the pandemic which left them with less support than they would have had.</p><p>Gideon still has breathing problems and a tracheostomy, and Evangeline has cerebral palsy.</p><p>But the young parents have taken the challenge in their stride - and say they embrace the chaos.</p><p>Hannah explained: "It's pretty much go-go-go every day - crazy, chaotic and loud.</p><p>"It's very messy, I'm cleaning my house non-stop.</p><p>"I clean one mess then turn around and there's another one appeared just behind me.</p><p>"But I like it that way - I grew up in a big family too - I was one of eight children."</p><p>The two girls, Evangeline and Philomena, share one bedroom while the boys, Elliot and Gideon, share another.</p><p>The parents keep organised thanks to a strict home schedule - naps, mealtimes and bath time occur at the same time each day.</p><p>Elliot and Philomena are both now on their feet and have learnt to walk and climb - making the parents' job that much more chaotic.</p><p>Hannah said: "There are definitely times each day where I think 'how in the world am I going to do this?'</p><p>"But I don't have another choice - stuff has to get done, so we get on with it."</p><p>But despite the chaotic mum life, Hannah says she wouldn't change a thing.</p><p>She and Jacob said they would even consider one day having another child one day.<br></p>
