Animal videos are one of the cutest things when it has some emotional connection.
On September 6, 2019, a cute video was shared by the Denver Zoo shows a lion cub playing around in its enclosure and his lion father comes and steals the show.
The adorable video shows a lion dad meeting his cub for the first time and the gentle behavior of the father was praised by many.
According to Bored Panda, Denver Zoo told that the cub was born on July 25. “He’s spent the last couple months bonding with his mom (Neliah), dad (Tobias) and half-sister (Kamara) behind the scenes at Predator Ridge at Denver Zoo, and will soon make his big public debut in one of the outdoor habitats,” Jake Kubié, the director of communications revealed.
“He’s all the things you might expect of a lion cub: playful, curious and energetic!”
“Everyone is extremely excited and anxious to pay him a visit once he makes his public debut,” Jake commented on the public’s response to the adorable cub.
“The weekly updates we’ve been posting to our social channels are met with an outpouring of “Ohhs” and “Ahhs.” [and] we’re doing our best to give everyone their cub fix while they wait to see him in person!”
Denver Zoo runs many initiatives to promote conservation programs at the Zoo, in their community, region, and in four other countries around the world. They even have educational programs as well as accept volunteer work. And encourage people to donate to help their efforts.
One of their initiatives is called “Adopt an Animal” in which you can adopt one of the 4,300 animals at the Denver Zoo.
“It’s very important to remember that half of African lions have disappeared in the last 25 years and face growing 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 little lion cub, people will be inspired and take action to help protect his wild counterparts and other wildlife around the world,” he added.
