One of two six-week-old lion cubs at San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
They're growing at 100 grams or three-and-a-half ounces a day and they're starting to eat solid food.
Zookeeper Sandy Craig encourages visitors to come and see the yet to be named pair.
SOUNDBITE: Sandy Craig, zookeeper, San Diego Zoo Safari Park, saying (English):
"They are just now starting to get their nice little baby teeth in and they are also becoming a lot more agile, learning to climb and jump, so these are all really cool little milestones for them."
But there's not too much climbing and jumping going on - the cubs sleep up to 20 hours a day.
