Have You Seen This? Baby lions timid roar is charming the internet
Even little lion cubs need to practice their roars so they can one day achieve "king of the jungle" status. - photo by Mary Dalrymple
THE JUNGLE It takes us all a little practice to get where we want to be in life, and that's just as true for the kings of the jungle as it is for everyone else.

In this video, an adorable lion cub "practices" roaring, and it's probably the cutest thing you'll see today. Though the baby lion may dream of being a big, powerful, intimidating creature one day, he's just a cute little furry guy right now and his "roars" sound more like barely audible squeaks than anything that might scare someone.

The video has completely won over the internet, and with more than 1.3 million views, it's safe to say it's made quite a few people want to cuddle a tiny lion. I personally watched it about 20 times just today, because I truly cannot get enough of this lion cub and his adorable roars.

I know you're not strong and scary yet, little lion, but keep on practicing that roar. You'll get there one day (and then, of course, we'll all keep our distance, but remember that we still love you).
