In this once-in-a-lifetime footage captured by the Oregon Zoo, viewers get the rare opportunity to see what it's like for a lion to meet his cubs for the first time.While it's clear the cubs are adorably psyched to meet their dad, papa lion wastes no time in laying down the law.However, when it comes to lion dads, this one is pretty patient. It may be scary to see him show his full set of chompers, but he doesn't actually bite or claw at them. Laura Weiner, the zoo's lead Africa keeper, told Fox 12 Oregon, "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."These days, visitors can watch the patient papa grooming and snuggling the cubs to their hearts' content.And for those of us who won't make it to the Oregon Zoo, at least we have this video!
