Sometimes we all try to act a little bit older than we are, and this little lion cub has proved the animal world is no exception.
The small cat was caught on an adorable video attempting to unleash a magnificent roar like a ferocious adult.
In the cutest way possible, the cub lets out the smallest and most charming of squeaks.
As he tries to strike fear into the hearts of those watching, the real-life Simba only makes himself seem less threatening with his little yelps.
His roar might reign supreme one day. For now, though, he better count on his cuteness to get him by.
