This baby lion’s attempts at getting attention are super cute, even if they aren’t exactly the kind of roar Katy Perry had in mind (or this guy for that matter):

We’re now going to need a band called Children to record a song called “When The White Lions Cry.”

According to the AP, the unnamed little lion was born at Serbia’s Belgrade Zoo two weeks ago and weighs fewer than three pounds. Adds Gawker:

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.

Apparently white lions are a rare mutation of a species found in South Africa and “are traditionally considered divine.” They are also no longer found in the wild because their coloring makes them easy prey.

The lion cub is more petulant than she is fearsome — she sounds like a disgruntled lamb-cat. We don’t speak baby lion, but we think she’s saying, “Where’s mom? Get her outta that sad-looking enclosure!”
