Feb 19, 2012 EDIT: I uploaded this video a few months ago. It was taken in Dec 2011. His sister had died shortly after their birth. He was a part of the third pair of cubs born to the mother that year. The cubs are routinely separated from their mother after birth in order to get them acclimated to their handlers and also to keep better eye on their growth and development. The cubs were also a part of an educational program at the facility directed at schools kids. He was eventually reunited with his mother and the rest of the lions.
I did/do not have anything to do with the care of this lion. I was simply visiting him.
