Touching footage shows the moment a lion at the Denver Zoo met his cub for the first time.

The video was released by Denver 7 on Friday, and shows lion dad Tobias, age 3, crouching down on his front legs to greet the cub at the little one’s height.

The boy cub, who was born on July 25, has yet to be named. The zoo is currently holding a voting competition to pick a name and they are deciding between “Meru,” “Moremi,” and “Tatu.” The first is the name of a mountain in Tanzania, the second is the name of a game reserve in Botswana, and the third is the Swahili word for the number three, since he is his mother’s third cub.
