This adorable lion cub trying to roar is anything but ferocious

Lions may be kings of the jungle, but even they have to start somewhere. Case in point: this adorable cub.

This littlest lion decided to try his hand at roaring like his fellow big cats. However, instead of a huge, scary roar, what comes out is actually the cutest and most innocent little squeak. It's the softest little sound that's more like a whimper than anything ferocious.
