Normally, males represent a danger to newborn lion babies in the wild. They used to kill their own cubs so that the female would have to mate again.
However, this did not happen in the next video that was recorded at the Denver Zoo.
In the next video, you can see how a male lion is waiting to see his own cub for the first time.
This video has been sensing all over the internet and has melted the hearts of all animal lovers shortly after being posted on Facebook by Denver Zoo employees.
The perfectly healthy lion cub spent his first months of life with his mother.
At one point, Denver Zoo employees decided it was time for the male to get to know his son.
This is the moment when the whole internet has melted. The reaction the young male has had is priceless.
The young lion cub can be seen by visitors to the Denver Zoo shortly.
Employees at the Denver Zoo are expecting a high flow of visitors due to the video that has gone viral worldwide.
Seeing that the video made the sensation on the internet, Denver Zoo fans asked for help finding the perfect lion cub name.
Suggestions include the name “Meru” which is actually the name of a mountain in Tanzania.
