The heart of a lion is there. But not the voice, not yet.
The tiny lion cub in this video goes on cute overload when he emerges from some grass and tries to roar several times, only to emit a faint squeak each time. On his first attempt he actually seems surprised by what comes out, and he tries roaring in two other directions: only to get the same result.
Don’t worry, little guy: we know they’ll be quaking in fear of you someday.
The YouTube video doesn’t include a location for the lion’s failed audition.
