TOO. MUCH. CUTE.
The Oregon Zoo in Portland has a whole bunch of adorable animals, but this is a special moment!
The video (above) shows sometime people don't get to see very often: lion cubs and their FIRST interaction with their proud poppa (named Zawadi Mungu)!
We think the best thing about it is that they're not intimidated at all, and they go straight to annoying him!
Here's what the keeper said:
"The cubs rushed him as soon as they saw him. We were confident that Zawadi would be tolerant of his cubs right away …. At first he was surprised but as time passed he grew more patient. A few days later, he was grooming them."
You gotta check out the video! It's too much!!

What in the world is going on with people!
We told you earlier about the totally disturbing situation at the Copenhagen Zoo where they murdered Marius the Giraffe in front of children, and then fed him to the lions.
People were outraged for many reasons, like
The Copenhagen Zoo in Denmark ignored a petition signed by 20,000 people and murdered one of their own animals.
A 2-year-old giraffe named Marius, a healthy male, was shot by a bolt gun and killed at the zoo because his genetics weren't diverse enough!
A giraffe can't be given contraceptives or be neutered because it can
What's the best part about the Grammys?
The after parties! Duh!!
There were some pretty ridic parties going on that evening but one of the crazier ones was thrown by rapper Meek Mill.
He rented out a mansion in the Hollywood Hills on Mulholland Drive and had over a thousand celebs there!!
Some of the more famous guests were Diddy, Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj and more!!
The party raged until 5am, and that's when the cops stepped in.
The police had been up all night, towing illegally parked cars up and down Mulholland, but once inside, the cops saw just how crazy the party was… it was full of
Zoo Basel has lion cubs and they're so cute we're about to quit everything and go run away to live in their lion enclosure.
There are four young, male lion cubs running around the zoo because two of the zoo's female lions, Okoa and Uma each gave birth to two cubs.
The babies were born only four days apart. Zoo officials will eventually need to DNA test the cubs and mamas to figure out whose baby is whose.
What's nice to see is that the cubs are all raised together by the females of the pride, just like in the wild.
The cubs' father (just one father) Mbali, has actually stayed in the picture, even though the males are normally removed from the nurturing environment.
He must be a total sweetheart! No danger is posed to his babies.
These lil' cubbies are part of the European Endangered Species Programme and so they're super important to creating sustainable lion populations!
So great, so cute, so totes amazeballs! Go lions, go!!

A 12-year-old girl was kidnapped in Ethiopia, beaten, and almost forced into an awful and disgusting marriage, but luckily, that marriage didn't happen because she was saved by LIONS.
Three lions, to be exact!
The lions chased off the seven men who
Kevin Richardson is a total lion whisperer!
So it makes sense that he covered himself in GoPro cameras and ran through the African bush to get lion hugs.
That's right, he's friends with lions and hyenas and they love him as if we were one of their own!
He gets very up close and personal with these beasts and it's truly ahmayzng!
Kevin doesn't just enjoy laying around with big cats… he wants to bring to light the fact that they're numbers are seriously dwindling in the wild!
In the 1950s there were around 100,000 lions in Africa… now? There are only as few as 32,000!
That's awful! Stop hunting lions, people!
They're so beautiful and majestic and cute, don't you want them around for generations and generations to be able to enjoy them??
Check out 15 minutes of Kevin hanging with big cats and hyenas AFTER THE JUMP!!
