Man Cuddles Lions In Zebra Colored Truck (VIDEO)

Befriending a pride of lions never looked so easy.

While it's not certain if that brave man in the YouTube video is a park ranger or professional animal trainer, one thing is for certain. He's certainly got a way with those affectionate big cats in his magnificent zebra truck.

The best part of the clip? When two of them cuddle him and lick his head.

While Asian lions are already listed as an endangered species, African lions have a shrinking population and could be headed in that direction.

According to the not for profit Big Cats Rescue, in the past 22 years wild lion populations have plummeted more than 48% with fewer than 40,000 remaining.

Other not-to-be-missed cute lion videos include a viral video featuring a cute baby lion playing with a toddler in a crib and a pair of cubs attempting to climb out of a massive plastic cup.
