Lion father plays with cubs for first time

Posted: Updated:

He’s a 500 pound carnivore – and a new dad!

Zawadi Mungu, male lion at the Oregon Zoo, played with his cubs outside for the first time last week.

Zawadi showed a surprising tolerance for the three cubs the zoo said.

“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," said Laura Weiner, lead Africa keeper.
