Baby lion cub! Includes “d’awwwww” pictures and video. Plus if you’re rich you can bid on eBay to name her

Awwwww man! These are so cute. I am such a sucker for cute animals. via Zooborns

On May 3rd, Monarto Zoo welcomed a beautiful African Lion cub to its fold. The cub appears healthy and strong and mother, Kiamba, is an excellent caretaker for the new arrival.  Monarto zoo is offering the public the opportunity to name the cub through the auction website eBay. African lions in the wild are in decline as a result of habitat loss, human conflict and disease from domestic animals. Wild populations have gone from nearly 250,00 individuals in the 1960’s to less than 20,000 today. Professor Christopher West, CEO of Zoos South Australia said, “We are celebrating the arrival of a single lion cub who will act as an ambassador of its species to people in Australia. We want people to help us secure a future for wild lions in Africa.”

After visiting the eBay auction website I think it’s hilarious that someone is going to pay hundreds (even thousands) of dollars to SUBMIT A NAME FOR CONSIDERATION. And obviously if I win and submit as the name for the baby lion, it’s not going to get picked, therefore I would be wasting thousands of dollars. That would be very, very silly. SO I’M GONNA DO IT!
