Animal videos are definitely one of the ways to win over the internet. And this video shared by the Denver Zoo has certainly melted the hearts of many.
In the video you can see an adorable lion cub playing in his enclosure. Although the tiny lion is the center of attention, the moment he shares with his dad is the highlight of the footage. The daddy lion met his cub for the first time while crouching down to interact with him. Many praised this 2 year old father for his gentle behavior.
Recently, the Denver Zoo released an adorable footage showing a lion father meeting his cub for the first time
The newborn cub is very playful, curious and energetic. As expected from a lion cub.
In the video you can also see the cub playing with his half-sister Kamara
People are very excited and looking forward to pay him a visit once he makes his public debut
“It is very important to have in mind that half of the African lions have disappeared in the last 25 years and face increasing threats, such as poaching, loss of prey and destruction of habitats in their native ranges,” the Denver Zoo representative said. “We hope that by seeing our lion cub, people will be inspired and take action to help protect their wild counterparts and other wild animals around the world,” he added.
