Sharing a cute animal video is undoubtedly among the top 3 ways to dominate the internet. Moving pictures of little animals have a valued and well-earned position on the world wide web, whether it be an adorable puppy taking its first steps in the world or a floofy cat doing something humorous. And the Denver Zoo’s uploaded video most definitely meets the requirements.
In the video posted on September 6, 2019, a lion cub can be seen playing in its enclosure. The moment between the young lion and his lion father is the highlight of the video, despite the fact that the baby lion is undoubtedly the center of attention. When the two generations first met, Tobias’ conduct toward his little son as he knelt down to engage in conversation quickly went viral online. Many people commended this 2-year-old parent for being so kind.
The cub was born on July 25, according to a representative from the Denver Zoo who was contacted by Bored Panda. At Predator Ridge at the Denver Zoo, he has spent the past several months developing relationships with his mother (Neliah), father (Tobias), and half-sister (Kamara). He will shortly make his big public debut in one of the outdoor habitats, according to Jake Kubié, the director of communications. He has all the characteristics of a lion cub, including playfulness, curiosity, and energy.
The Denver Zoo regularly uploads “cubdates” to offer the public a look at its newest lion cub, who has not yet been given a name. In fact, the zoo is attempting to engage the general public by allowing them choose a name in order to generate money for lions in both the zoo and in the wild. The remaining options are Tatu, which is the Swahili word for three (since the cub is Neliah’s third child), Meru, which is the name of a mountain in Tanzania, Moremi, which is the name of a wildlife reserve in Botswana.

once he debuts in front of the public Jake made a statement on how the people reacted to the cute cub. We try our best to satisfy everyone’s cub need as they wait to see the cub in person. “The weekly updates we’ve been publishing to our social channels are received with an outpouring of “Ohhs” and “Ahhs”!”
The video also depicts the little cub interacting with an adult female lion, who is not his mother but rather his half-sister Kamara, who is 4 years old. She is the most loving and caring elder sister, according to the Denver Zoo’s Instagram feed.
The representative of the Denver Zoo emphasized that it was crucial to keep in mind that half of African lions have vanished in the past 25 years and are currently threatened by poaching, the loss of prey, and habitat damage in their natural habitats. “We hope that people will be motivated and take action to help conserve his wild counterparts and other species throughout the world by viewing our tiny lion cub,” he continued.
The Denver Zoo has a number of programs in place to operate conservation efforts there as well as in their neighborhood, area, and four other nations. They not only ask for donations to support their work, but they also provide educational programs and accept volunteer labor. The Denver Zoo has 4,300 animals, and one of their programs is called “Adopt an Animal,” which gives you the chance to “adopt” one of them and take home a plush facsimile of that animal! Pretty cool!
