Lion Cubs Play With Steel Ball: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

Here is video zookeepers took of lion cubs Kalu and Kamara playing with a steel ball inside Benson Predator Ridge. Zookeepers provide this hanging ball as enrichment to stretch and strengthen their muscles and to encourage natural behavior, like playing.

YouTube video description

These adorable lion cubs may be strengthening their muscles by playing with a steel ball, but they are always providing entertainment for zoo visitors and YouTube viewers.

I`d much rather watch these cute lion cubs play with a steel ball, than watch a naked Miley Cyrus swing from a steel ball. OK, I lie, but it sure is a delightful video.
