    Default Lion cub at France's Lunaret Zoo

    Tica, a month-old lion cub, is the youngest (and, we'd argue, cutest) resident of the Lunaret Zoo in Montpellier, France. Tica was born July 1 and is the first lion to be born at the zoo.
    Tica is extra special because she's a descendant of an an extraordinarily rare subspecies, the Atlas lion (also called a Barbary lion). Atlas lions are extinct in the wild, although a small number live in zoos. See another photo of Tica after the jump!

    Awwwww. It's great to see animals this close to extinction in successful breeding programs.

    She is adorable. Hope we get some "growing up" photos of her too.
