Lion Cubs Play with Father, Ignore Unhappy Roars

by at . Comments

We already know dogs can be quite adorable, especially when laying on a guilt trip.

But who knew lions could be so gosh darn cute?!?

In the following photos and accompanying video from The Oregon Zoo, three cubs try to have some fun with their very serious father, who seems more interested in roaring than climbing or licking.

But these little guys are mostly undeterred, doing their best to make a loving impression on dear old dad:

  • Cubs Play with Dad
  • Dad Roars at Cub

And it worked!

"The cubs rushed him as soon as they saw him," an Oregon Zoo keeper said of this initial first meeting, which took place last week. "At first he was surprised but as time passed he grew more patient. A few days later, he was grooming them."

That's very nice to hear.

And it's very sweet to watch. Check out footage of the family hanging out here:
