Audubon Zoo's Lion Cubs Smile Through Vet Exam

Oh my, oh my! If these aren't the most precious pictures we've ever seen -- we don't know what is! We seriously cannot contain our smiles looking at these purrfect lion cubs smile! 

It's totally contagious! 

The cubs are both males who have yet to be named, born January 11th to mom Kali and dad Arnold, at the Audubon Zoo.

The duo went in for a routine check-up and had their first round of vaccinations -- both "healthy and active," says zoo curator of large mammals, Joe Forys. 

"The cubs looked great. Their body condition is outstanding. They are both growing at a rate that we would expect. We're really happy," continued Forys.

The cubs great health is all thanks to their loving and doting mother! Forys said that Kali is providing her babies with absolutely everything they need and more. These two sure look like happy cubs to us!

Better look out! These lions and tigers are haanngry! For those of you that don't know, 'hangry' is a combination of hunger + angry. 

And it is very, very real. 

Big Cat Rescue is an educational non-breeding, accredited, sanctuary for these magnificent murder floofs! In their bio, they describe their residents attitudes, "In many of our videos the big cats come of to be sweet, but wait until they are introduced to food. This is one of those times they like to show their wild side!"

This is the kind of news we love! 

Indonesian police have confirmed the arrest of two men suspected of being part of a ring that poaches and trades in endangered animals. They have seized from them several lion and leopard cubs and dozens of turtles.

Way to go, Indonesian police! Here's to hoping more poachers are brought in and arrested!

In the meantime, we can be grateful these cubs and turtles can live out a life in peace.

This Photo Won The Public Vote In The Wildlife Photographer Of The Year Competition

Photographer David Lloyd's Bond of Brothers image, which features a pair of male lions, took home the People's Choice Award at this year's Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.

And we would never in years of such behavior towards these majestic animals, be able to capture a moment so pure and natural.

Lions Make Hilarious Facial Expressions

As some of the most famous animals in  the animal kingdom, and the proverbial "king", I think we can expect behavior a bit more dignified and collected than these dorks. But its good to know as majestic, and oftentimes intimidating they can be, at heart they are just a bunch of goofball cats looking to live large and have a good time.
