The animal kingdom often offers strange moments that should brighten up your day. But while a dog or cat, or generally pets, is to be expected to act silly, even intrepid predators have their moments. Take, for example, this majestic lion whose antics made everyone laugh.
In a very adorable but comical video, a male lion shows the world that parenting is not the easiest job. He should be in charge of not only one but four little lion cubs. Even more, judging by the way he really shies away from responsibility, you might think that it’s actually the hardest part.
It starts with the lion walking toward some dried-up bones.
The cubs, curious about what their dad was up to, got up on their little feet and started to hop toward him. The lion was still oblivious to what was happening, but the cubs needed to satisfy the itch of their inquiry.
When the lion finally noticed how close the cubs were, he bolted. No, not turn slowly and walk away. He jumped and turned like the four cubs posed more threat than a rival male lion challenging him for supremacy.
The cubs, maybe impressed on how their dad could run so fast, hopped and galloped toward him.
Maybe they wanted to know how to be a grown-up lion like their dad, but we’ll never know. In any case, the video debuts with the lion’s father clearly being accused of his little ones. In any case, he’s trusting, he may watch out for them, from distance. Yet, in fledglings’ vision that won’t occur as they easily keep it up with the male, in any event, when he’s in a real sense fleeing.
The video posted on YouTube has garnered over 19 million views with comments ranging from funny quips about parenthood to the realities that other children face. After all, with four troubled kids on the way, the day can be quite difficult. Or you can use that father’s tactic.
