Aw, well usually you see lion cubs playing together with their momma close by. Not this time!

Looks like mom went to have some “me” time and left the kids with their dad. Only papa lion ain’t lookin’ too happy with baby sitting. Amazing how the animal world is so close to the human world!

The lion’s name is Zawadi at the Oregon Zoo. The zoo reported:

Last week, the male lion ventured outside with his trio of energetic cubs for the first time, and demonstrated a surprising tolerance for a flurry of pint-sized attacks on his mane, tail and patience.

The cubs were first introduced to their dad in their indoor den a few days earlier.

“We were confident that Zawadi would be tolerant of his cubs right away, and we’re glad we were right because the cubs rushed him as soon as they saw him,” said Laura Weiner, lead Africa keeper. “At first he was surprised but as time passed he grew more patient. A few days later, he was grooming them.”
