Little Lion Cub Tries to Roar, and This Sound Comes Out
Animals| | By Mara Sandroff
Have you ever wondered what a little lion cub sounds like? If you were expecting a deep, thundering roar, you’d be wrong! It turns out that even lion cubs have to learn how to talk. When this baby lion tries to make a sound, it comes out even softer than a kitten’s meow.
After this cub grows up, his roar will be much louder. Smithsonian Magazine says a lion or tiger roar can reach up to 114 decibels, which is 25 times louder than a gas-powered lawn mower. Unlike most animals, which have triangle shaped vocal folds, lions and tigers have flat, square-shaped provisions that are extremely strong and flexible. As a result, these cats can roar extra loudly without damaging their lungs. It’s hard to believe that this tiny lion cub will one day be capable of producing such a loud sound! Don’t forget to SHARE with your favorite cat lover!
