Funny video: Lion cub sneaks up on mother to scare her, watch what happens next!
Cute and funny animal videos where they are being their own self are definite mood lifters for people. When the video involves baby animals, a serotonin boost is guaranteed. Well, in a video that has been going around social media websites recently, there is a huge dollop of cuteness as well as fun. The video involves a lion cub and its mother. The lion cub sneaks up on its mother to scare her, and boy, does it work!
The video is captured in an enclosure at Edinburgh zoo. A lioness can be seen resting calmly, while two cubs play around. Mom is concentrating on a cub right in front of her eyes. However, she forgot to keep an eye on her second baby. The young cub can be seen slowly sneaking up on its mother from behind. Mom is so engrossed in watching the one before her, she has no clue that a vicious, little attacker is sneaking up from behind. All of a sudden the baby jumps ahead, and bumps the mother on her back. The lioness was concentrating so hard on one of her kids that this little bump makes her jump out of her skin! She whips her head around and realises that it was her own little one who startled her.

Teamwork. One to distract from a safe distance and one to go for the nip…
