Good morning, here is a lion cub holding a bottle

Check out some photos of these rare Asiatic cubs. Squee levels: Critical.

THIS IS CRITICALLY endangered Asiatic lion cub Kamran, who’s being hand reared at Bristol Zoo.

Zoo staff took the difficult and rare decision to step in and hand rear Kamran after his mother Shiva began mis-mothering her two cubs.
