Baby Lions Play In Ukutula South African Park (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

There's nothing more adorable than a baby lion playing in a bucket. Except, of course, two baby lions.

In this incredibly cute YouTube video, a pair of 9-day-old lion cubs attempt to climb out of a massive plastic cup they're using as a play pin. But the two just don't quite have the strength to propel themselves out into the wilderness before nap time.

The clip was filmed in Ukutula Lion Park and Lodge, located just an hours drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria in South Africa.

While Asian lions are endangered, African lions have a shrinking population.

The footage reminds us of a recent viral video featuring a cute cub playing with a toddler in a crib.

Other not-to-be-missed adorable videos include these orphaned baby wombats playing in a sanctuary and this kitten snuggling up to a deer.
