Who can scare a full-grown lioness? Turns out, it’s one of her kids.

The Royal Zoological Society at Scotland’s Edinburgh Zoo posted on October 7 a video of a less-than-two-month-old cub sneaking up on the resting lioness.

The clip, which lasts all of 19-seconds, has gone viral, generating in effect a moment worthy of a meme. The Zoo captioned the tweet : “Trying to relax when you have little ones.”

The lioness is of an Asiatic breed. She was moved to the Edinburgh Zoo Edinburgh from Magdeburg Zoo in Germany in 2014. The cubs of this litter – originally five, but one three survive - were born in August.
