Viral Video: Lion Cubs Meet Dad for First Time

A lion is the undisputed king of the jungle, and the star of the zoo, but is he a good father?

Zawadi the Lion at first seems indifferent when he meets his three 6-month old cubs for the first time, but he joins in their play, or at least he allows them to climb all over him and generally annoy the heck out of him.
