These Little Lion Cubs Wish They Could Roar Like Dad (VIDEO)

When mom and dad took their cubs on a stroll in the Okavango river delta in Botswana, dad let out his mighty roar.

The cubs adorably tried to repeat the bellow, but kind of sounded like kittens meowing instead. They will grow up fast enough though, and soon they'll have a lung capacity to match papa's. In the meantime, they are kings of the jungle in training, and we love their little attempts to learn from their parents.
