It's another adoro lil big cat, this time a different species (Java's a leopard) but just as ready for that close-up. The four-week-old lion cub was born in Dortmund, Germany and there's actually a twin.

No joke but these two are already quite the soccer stars, perhaps in training for next year's World Cup and taking after another German animal we love to look at? I'm not sure if they're on offense or defense but see what I mean as both cubs play ball (and with mom) in the precious pictures below.
