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!!

Baby Lions Will Steal Your Heart!

Lion cubs

Back on April 7th, four Asiatic Lion cubs were born at the Emmen Zoo in Holland.

The little guys are so crazy cute it hurts!

They were born to proud parents Zulu, the papa, and Tia, the mama.

The night house den, a behind the scenes enclosure, was cleared of all other lions, so Tia and her babies could bond during the critical first few weeks of life.

With a live webcam back there, the keepers have been able to monitor the cubs as they nurse, bond and grow bigger and bigger each day.

Tia is apparently an excellent mother.

So glad that all the little cubs are happy and healthy!

The world can always use a few more lions.
