'Playful' Lion Cub Can't Get Enough of Enrichment Ball at Denver Zoo

Denver Zoo’s 11-month-old African lion cub Tatu made the most of a ball during a recent enrichment session, footage shared by the zoo on June 28 shows.

The video shows a curious Tatu clawing at and playing with a large ball in his enclosure at the zoo’s Predator Ridge Encounter.

Denver Zoo said Tatu, who celebrates his first birthday on July 25, is still a “super playful cub” who “doesn’t let the rain slow him down.”

The zoo said, “Lions are the most active in cooler weather, especially as this rain came after a streak of hot days.” Credit: Denver Zoo via Storyful
