It isn’t uncommon to see videos of our favourite furry feline friends cleaning themselves. However, it may be rare to see the king of the jungle indulge in a similar grooming routine. So if you’re an all-around cat enthusiast, this clip of Hubert, the lion’s, self-care session is a must-watch.
Posted on Instagram from Los Angeles Zoo’s official account, the recording is almost 90 seconds long. It has been shared with a caption reading, “Calming Video: Hubert the Lion’s Self-Care Session. We aren’t lion… this video will help you relax”.
The recording shows Hubert, the lion hanging out in the open. The wild cat darts its big tongue out and starts licking its paws. The animal’s precession and repetitively slow ease, make the motions highly soothing to watch.
