Heartwarming footage of a baby lion attempting to roar surfaced online (below).
In the video, the lion cub is seen emerging from the grass and approaching the person operating the camera.
The cub tentatively begins to roar, only to be startled by the noise that emerges — a tiny squeak.
The lion makes a few additional attempts at a defiant roar, instead making the same squeaking sound each time.
The clip ends with the cub wandering back toward the grass and testing out one last roar before leaving the area.
Watch the adorable footage below.
