Honestly, this is too cute for words.
There is no doubt that Tatu, Denver's newest lion cub, has stolen our hearts. From the moment the little guy was born to his first days exploring his habitat, we've watched him with awe every step of the way, and we even got to vote on his new name.
Get ready to fall in love with him all over again! The storm we had in late October resulted in snow days for many of our kids around the metro area. It was also Tatu's first snow day, as well! He hit the powder with his big sister, Kamara, and it's clear that he's a true Colorado native.
"It should be no surprise that this ever-playful cub has been having a blast!" says the Denver Zoo Facebook page. Check out his big day in the video out below! It appears his sister has her paws full just trying to keep him corralled.
According to the zoo's Facebook page, Tatu and the rest of the pride at Predator Ridge have free access to indoors and outdoors during the colder months, so they can come and go as they please.
"When it’s this cold, we give him the chance to go back and forth from his warm bedroom to the fun-but-frosty yards, but as you can see he just has a blast goofing off with big sister Kamara. Now that he's older, he's joined his family in the regular Predator Ridge rotation, which means sometimes he'll be behind the scenes while our other groups enjoy the outdoor yards."
Tatu wasn't the only animal enjoying the snow day at the zoo!
