    Background: Daphne, Chloe and Montmorency starred in their first public appearance on Thursday (24 April). The setting was an enclosure at London Zoo and the audience consisted mostly of camera-happy newsmen and excited children.

    Daphne, Chloe and Montmorency are North American black bear cubs -- and the first triplets of their species to be born at the Zoo. They made their debut under the watchful eye of mother Bessie on a warm Spring day.

    After romping around for a while the cubs got stage fright, shied away from the crowd and hid behind some rocks. Mother Bessie decided that too much admiration might turn a young bear's head and led the triplets firmly back into the seclusion of their den.
